Just need justification for Ochem?
Using the reaction below, calculate the number ofmilliliters of bromine required to react completely with 5g of1,2-dimethoxbenzene.
1,2-dimethoxybenzene + Br2 --> + HBr
MW= 138.18g/mol MW=159.8g/mol
Br2 MW= 159.8 and density= 3.10 g/mol

did you forget your stoichimetry steps?
.. (1) write a balanced equation
.. (2) convert everything to moles
.. (3) determine limiting reagent
.. (4) convert moles limiting reagent to moles of whatever of whatever you seek
.. (5) convert moles back to mass
.. (6) calc % yield if applicable.. = actual / theoretical * 100%
*** 1 ***
what's the reaction?.. we know that
... ϕ - OCH3 + HBr ----> Br3-ϕ-OCH3.
see this link
but what happens when you have 2 adjacent methoxy groups on that ϕ ring?
dead batteries. I'll finish later

5 g reactant / 138.13 g/mol X (1 mol Br2 / 1 mol reactant) X 159.8 g/mol X (1 mL/3.10 g) = 1.87 mL Br2
