Problem 45P

PROBLEM 45P

Determine the theoretical yield of C when each of the initial quantities of A and B is allowed to react in the generic reaction:

A + 2 B → 3 C

(a) 1 mol A; 1 mol B

(b) 2 mol A; 2 mol B

(c) 1 mol A; 3 mol B

(d) 32 mol A; 68 mol B

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 45P

Step 1:

The theoretical yield in a chemical reaction is the amount of product that would be produced in a complete reaction. It is calculated by balancing the reaction and determining the ratio of reactant to the product.

To determine the theoretical yield, first we have to determine the limiting reagent for each reaction, as the limiting reagent will be all used up in the reaction. Then from the moles of limiting reagent given, we determine moles of C that is formed as a product.
