Balanced Equations, I need a Chemistry Pro help!?

I have a test tomorrow and I dont get this AT ALL! If any one can help me with all of theses or any of these that would be so fantastic thank you!<3

This is the Equation

4FeS₂ + 11O₂ -------> 2Fe₂O₃ + 8SO₂ + 350 KJ

(4FeS₂ (Mwt =120) ) (11O₂ (Mwt =32)) (2Fe₂O₃ (Mwt =160)) (8SO₂(Mwt =64))

1) How much energy in (KJ) will be produced if 15.34 moles of FeS₂ were to completely combust?

2) How many moles of Fe₂ O₃ will be produced if 8.71g of FeS₂ were to react?

3) If 83.5g of FeS₂ were to completely react, how many grams of SO₂ would you theoretically expect to form?

4) If 83.5g of FeS₂ reacted compleatly, as in question #3 and 75.0g of SO₂ were recovered, what would be the % yield of SO₂ ?

5) What is the temperature (in degree Celsius) of a 53.5 g sample of an ideal gas of Mwt = 30.5 g/mol if it is confined in 235 L vessel at a pressure of 0.175 Atm?

6) What will be the new volume when 128 mL of gas at 20.0˚C is heated to 40.0˚C while pressure remains unchanged?

any thing helps thank you!

    I'm impressed that you can do subscripts here...I don't know how.

    1) If 350 kJ are released from 4 moles FeS2, x kJ are released from 15.34 moles FeS2. This is essentially a proportion problem from pre-algebra. Solve it and you get x = 1342 kJ.

    2) 8.71 g FeS2 / (120 g/mol) = 0.0726 moles FeS2.

    The mole ratio is 4 FeS2 : 2 Fe2O3, so (again, a proportion problem) we get 0.0363 moles Fe2O3

    3) 85.3 g FeS2 / (120 g/mol) = 0.711 mole FeS2

    The mole ratio is 4 FeS2 : 8 SO2, so (proportionally) we get 1.422 mole SO2

    1.422 mole SO2 * (64 g/mol) = 91.0 g SO2

    4) 75.0 g / 91.0 g = 82.4% yield. In general, for yield, divide what you actually get by the amount you calculated for complete reaction.

    5) Use the ideal gas law, PV=nRT. P = 0.175 atm, V = 235 L, n = 53.5 g / (30.5 g/mol) = 1.75 moles, R = 0.082057 L atm K-1 mol-1.

    So T = PV/nR = (0.175 atm) (235 L) / (1.75 mol) (0.082057 L atm K-1 mol-1) = 123 K,

    and 123 K - 273.15 = -150°C.

    6) Since PV=nRT, we have V1/T1 = nR/P = V2/T2. 20.0°C = 293.15 K and 40.0°C = 313.15 K.

    Therefore 128 mL / 298.15 K = x / 313.15 K ---> x = 134 mL.

    this is Redox reaction C8H18 is impartial. H has +a million fee. then C8 is eighteen- -18/8= -2.25 in CO2 O has fee -2 and C has fee +4 C2.25- - 6.25e = C4+ |6.5 O2 + 4e = 2O2- |4 4C9- - 25e = C16+ |25 O2 + 4e = 2O2- |4 2C8H18 + 25O2 -> 16CO2 + 18H2O

    1. is a mole to energy proportion...use the coefficients of the reaction 350kJ and 4

    2. just plains 3 step stoich...use example 3 in this video

    http://www.kentchemistry.com/links/Math/reactionst...

    3.same as #2

    4. percent yield...just plug in your numbers ...http://www.kentchemistry.com/links/Math/PercentYie...

    5.use the ideal gas law...http://www.kentchemistry.com/links/GasLaws/idealGa...

    6. use Charles Law...http://www.kentchemistry.com/links/GasLaws/charles...
