Problem 61P

PROBLEM 61P 

Consider the reaction between calcium oxide and carbon dioxide:

CaO(s) + CO2(g) → CaCO3(s)

A chemist allows 14.4 g of CaO and 13.8 g of CO2 to react. When the reaction is finished, the chemist collects 19.4 g of CaCO3. Determine the limiting reactant, theoretical yield, and percent yield for the reaction.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 61P

Step 1:

The limiting reactant in a chemical reaction is the substance that is totally consumed when the chemical reaction is complete, i.e a reactant that is completely used up in a reaction, and thus determines when the reaction stops.

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.

Percent yield is the ratio of the actual yield to the theoretical yield.

        Percent yield = 100

The actual yield is a product that is obtained by experimentation
