    Molar calculations - making CuCl2

    I am making CuCl2 - Cu (s) + 2 HCl (aq) -> CuCl2 + H2 My calculation is this: Molar weight of copper is ~63 g/mol thus I have 10/63= ~ 0.16 mol of copper. Making CuCl2 from it should take 2*0.16 ~ 0.32 mol of acid. 32% solution HCl ~ 10 mol which means 1mol ~ 100ml so I need 0.32*100ml ~...
