Problem 65

Although they were formerly called the inert gases, at least the heavier elements of Group 8 do form relatively stable compounds. For example, xenon combines directly with elemental fluorine at elevated temperatures in the presence of a nickel catalyst. Xe(g) _ 2F2(g) S XeF4(s) What is the theoretical mass of xenon tetrafluoride that should form when 130. g of xenon is reacted with 100. g of F2? What is the percent yield if only 145 g of XeF4 is actually isolated?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Chapter 18: Week of April 4th Balancing redox reactions: A redox reaction involves the transfer of electrons from one species to another. This results in a change in oxidation number. Oxidation (reducing agent): is the loss of electrons Reduction(oxidizing agent): is the gain of electrons Balancing redox reactions: Step 1: divide the reaction into two half reactions, and add electrons to each half reaction to balance the charge.
