Consider the generic chemical reaction:
2 A + 3 B → 3 C
How many moles of B are required to completely react with:
(a) 6 mol of A
(b) 2 mol of A
(c) 7 mol of A
(d) 11 mol of A
Here, we are going to calculate the number of moles of B required to completely react with the given moles of A.
The given generic chemical reaction is:
2A + 3B → 3C
From the above equation, it is clear that, 2 moles of A requires 3 moles of B for complete reaction.
Therefore, 1 mole of A will require (3/2 = 1.5) mol of B for complete reaction.
