5. Calculate how many grams of iron can be made from 16.5 grams of Fe2O3 by the following equation.

                               Fe2O3 + 3 H2 -------------> 2 Fe + 3 H2O
6. Iodine chloride, ICl, can be made by the following reaction between iodine, I2, potassium iodate, KIO3, and hydrochloric acid.

                      2 I2   +   KIO3  +  6 HCl  --------->   5 ICl  +  KCl  +  3 H2O

Calculate how many grams of iodine are needed to prepare 28.6 grams of ICl by this reaction.
7. The nitrite ion (NO2-) in potassium nitrite is changed to the nitrate ion by the action of potassium permanganate (KMnO4) in sulphuric acid solution.

   5 KNO2 + 2 KMnO4 + 3 H2SO4 ------>   5 KNO3 + 2 MnSO4 + K2SO4 + 3 H2O

How many moles and how many grams of KMnO4 are needed to carry out this reaction on 11.4 grams of KNO2?
8. The chief component of glass is silica for which the formula SiO2 can be used.  Silica is dissolved by hydrofluoric acid, HF, according to the following reaction that produces silicon tetrafluoride, SiF4, a gas at room temperature.

                          SiO2 + 4 HF ------------> SiF4 + 2 H2O

How many grams and how many moles of SiF4 can be produced from 63.4 grams of HF?
9. Copper(I) iodide, CuI, is not stable enough to last long in storage, so it is generally made just prior to use. In can be prepared from copper sulphate and hydriodic acid by the following reaction.

                     2 CuSO4 + 4 HI -------------> 2 CuI + 2 H2SO4 + I2

If 10.4 grams of CuSO4 is used, calculate the number of grams of HI needed and the number of grams of each of the products that are produced. Show that the mass data are in accordance with the law of conservation of mass in chemical reactions.
10. If 2.56 grams of chlorine, Cl2, are to be used to prepare dichlorine heptoxide, Cl2O7, how many moles and how many grams of oxygen are needed?
11. Under the right conditions, ammonia can be converted to nitric oxide, NO by the following reaction.

                            4 NH3 + 5 O2 -----------> 4 NO + 6 H2O

How many moles and how many grams of oxygen are needed to react with 56.8 grams of ammonia by this reaction?
12. One way to prepare iodine is to mix sodium iodate, NaIO3, with hydriodic acid, HI.  The following reaction occurs.

                 NaIO3 + 6 HI ------------> 3 I2 + NaI + 3 H2O

Calculate the number of moles and the number of grams of iodine that can be made this way from 16.4 grams of NaIO3.
13. Nickel metal reacts with silver nitrate solution according to the following balanced equation.

                 Ni + 2 AgNO3 ----------->  2 Ag + Ni(NO3)2
