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.
