| **Potassium oxide, amount of substance = 2.5 mol, was placed in a solution of hydrochloric acid. Calculate the mass of the salt in the solution.**

Let’s compose the reaction equation, find the quantitative ratios of substances.

К2О + 2HCl = 2KCl + H2O.

According to the reaction equation, there is 2 mol of KCl for 1 mol of K2O. The substances are in quantitative ratios of 1: 2.

2n (K2O) = n (KCl) = 2.5 × 2 = 5 mol.

Let’s find the mass of KCl.

m = n × M,

M (KCl) = 74.5 g / mol.

m = 5 mol × 74.5 g / mol = 372.5 g.

Answer: 372.5 g.
