Problem 51P

PROBLEM 51P

Consider the generic reaction between reactants A and B:

3 A + 4 B → 2 C

If a reaction vessel initially contains 9 mol A and 8 mol B, how many moles of A, B, and C will be in the reaction vessel after the reactants have reacted as much as possible? (Assume 100% actual yield.)

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 51P

Here, we are going to calculate the number of moles for A, B and C.

Therefore, for that we have to calculate the limiting reactant or reagent for the reaction.

The reactant which is completely consumed in a chemical reaction and limits the product formation is called limiting reagent.

The amount of product formed based on the limiting reagent is called theoretical yield.

3 A + 4 B → 2 C

Here, 8 moles of B react completely with =  8 mol B x = 6 mol A

But there is more A (9 mol) than B (8 mol) used in the reaction. So B is the limiting agent.

Thus, when the reaction completes there will be no B remaining in the vessel.

Therefore, Number of moles in B will be 0.0 mol.

After, completion reaction, reactant A remains...
