### pregunta

cual seria la ecuacion para el siguiente problema
cierta muestra de carbon posee 1.6 % en masa de azufre cuando se quema el carbon el azufre se convierte en dioxido de azufre para evitar la contaminacion el dioxido de azufre se trata con oxido de calcio CaO para formar sulfito de calcio CaSO3 calcule la masa de Cao en kilogramos que necesita diariamente una planta de energia que utiliza 6.60 x 10 6 Kg de carbon al dia

### Re: pregunta

What would be the equation for the following problem?
A certain sample of carbon has 1.6% by mass of sulfur when the carbon is burned the sulfur is converted into sulfur dioxide. To avoid contamination the sulfur dioxide is treated with calcium oxide CaO to form calcium sulfite CaSO3. Calculate the mass of CaO in kilograms that a power plant needs daily that uses 6.60 x 10 6 Kg of coal per day.

### Re: pregunta

1. Calculate the mass of sulfur using percentage math
2. Calculate the mole of sulfur
3. Develop the equation to get calcium sulfite
4. According the equation get the mole of CaO
5. Convert this to mass
