4 Na + O₂ = 2 Na₂O

4* 23 g Na --------> 16 g O₂
9.5 g Na ------------> ?

Mass of O₂ = 9.5 * 16 / 4 * 23

Mass = 152 / 92

Mass = 1.6521 g of O₂

Molar mass O₂ = 16.0 g/mol

1 mole O₂ ------------ 16.0 g 
? mole O₂ ------------ 1.6521 g

mole O₂ = 1.6521 * 1 / 16.0

≈ 0.10325 moles of O₂

hope this helps!
