Expert Answer:

Given:
 
Moles of SO4 ions in aluminium sulphate = 0.0774 mole
 
The molecular formula of aluminium sulphate is Al2(SO4)3 
 
On dissociation:
 
Al2(SO4)3 → 2Al3+  +  3SO42−
 
Therefore 2 moles of Al3+ combines with 3 moles of SO42− ions.
 
So, 0.0774 mols of SO42− ions will contain
 
 
equals space fraction numerator 0.07746 cross times 2 over denominator 3 end fraction

equals 0.516 space moles space of space Al to the power of 3 plus end exponent space
 
 
Moles of aluminium are 0.516 mole
