Problem 56P

PROBLEM 56P

For the reaction, find the limiting reactant for each of the initial quantities of reactants.

4 Al(s) + 3 O2(g) → 2 Al2O3(s)

(a) 1.0 g Al; 1.0 g O2

(b) 2.2 g Al; 1.8 g O2

(c) 0.353 g Al; 0.482 g O2

Step-by-Step Solution:

PROBLEM 56P

For the reaction, find the limiting reactant for each of the initial quantities of reactants.

(a) 1.0 g Al; 1.0 g O2

(b) 2.2 g Al; 1.8 g O2

(c) 0.353 g Al; 0.482 g O2

                                                    Step by Step Solution

Step 1 of 3

a)

The given chemical reaction is as follows.

                                     

Let’s calculate the amount of  was produced if “Al” is the limiting reactant.

   

Hence, 1.89 g of  was produced if “Al” is the limiting reactant.

Let’s calculate the amount of  was produced if  is the limiting reactant.


Hence, 2.12 g of   was produced if  is the limiting reactant.

From the above calculations “Al” produces the least amount of product.

Therefore, “Al” is the limiting reactant.
