1. Write the balanced equation for the reaction conducted in this lab, including appropriate phase symbols. (2 points)

2. Determine the partial pressure of the hydrogen gas collected in the gas collection tube. (3 points)

3. Calculate the moles of hydrogen gas collected. (4 points)

n = [pic]

5. Determine the percent yield of this reaction, showing all steps of your calculation. (3 points)

Percent Yield = [pic] × 100
