Problem 49P

PROBLEM 49P

For the reaction shown, calculate the theoretical yield of product in moles for each of the initial quantities of reactants.

2 Mn(s) + 3 O2(g) → 2 MnO3(s)

(a) 2 mol Mn; 2 mol O2

(b) 4.8 mol Mn; 8.5 mol O2

(c) 0.114 mol Mn; 0.161 mol O2

(d) 27.5 mol Mn; 43.8 mol O2

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 49P

Here, we are going to calculate the theoretical yield of product in moles.

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.

2 Mn(s) + 3 O2(g) → 2 MnO3(s)

2 mol Mn; 2 mol O2

Here, conversion is mole to mole

Mol Mn(s) = mol MnO3(s) = mol O2 (g)

Therefore,

2 mol Mn x = 2.0 mol MnO3(s)

Similarly,  2 mol O2 x = 1.33 mol MnO3(s)

Thus, we know least amount of product formation determines the limiting reagent.

Hence, the limiting reactant is O2

Therefore, the theoretical yield of the product from the reaction having (a) is 1.33 mole.

(b) 4.8 mol Mn; 8.5 mol O2

2 Mn(s) + 3 O2(g) → 2 MnO3(s)

Here, conversion is mole to mole

Mol Mn(s) = mol MnO3(s) = mol O2 (g)

Therefore,

4.8 mol Mn x = 4.8 mol MnO3(s)

Similarly, 8.5 mol O2 x = 5.66 mol MnO3(s)

Thus, we know least amount of product...
