3 Cu + 8HNO3 → 3 Cu(NO3)2  + 2 NO + 4 H2O

In the above equation, how many grams of water can be made when 13.5 moles of HNO3 are consumed?


Round your answer to the nearest tenth. If you answer is a whole number like 4, report the answer as 4.0

Use the following molar masses. If you do not use these masses, the computer will mark your answer incorrect.:

Element   Molar Mass

Hydrogen   1

Nitrogen   14

Copper   63.5

Oxygen   16

please help by explaining and solving please

There are 13.5 moles HNO3, not 13, so the answer is off by 4.5 g. It should be 121.5 g H2O produced.

Thank you. 13.5 x 0.5 moles of water, so 13.5 x 0.5 x 18g of water
