# How many mols of O2 can be obtained from 1 mol of KCLO3?

hey

The reaction is.....2KCLO3 ------ 2KCL + 3O2

How many mols of O2 can be obtained from 1 mol of KCLO3?

Do I need to do a molar relationship? I am trying to figure out a way to set these problems up. Thanks!

### The balanced equation says 2

The balanced equation says 2 mole KClO3 will give you 3 moles O2. You need to figure out how many moles of O2 are made fom 1 mole KClO3!!!!!

### The ratio between KClO3 and

The ratio between KClO3 and O2 is 2 : 3
This means that the decomposition of 2 moles of KClO3 produces 3 moles of O2
moles O2 that can be obtained from ne mole of KClO3 = 1 x 3 / 2 = 1.5
1 mole of KCLlO3 * (3moles KClO3/2moles O2) = 1.5 moles of O2.
