Problem 102

Acrylonitrile (C3H3N) is the starting material for many synthetic carpets and fabrics. It is produced by the following reaction. If 15.0 g C3H6, 10.0 g O2, and 5.00 g NH3 are reacted, what mass of acrylonitrile can be produced, assuming 100% yield?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Problem 102

Acrylonitrile (C3H3N) is the starting material for many synthetic carpets and fabrics. It is produced by the following reaction.

2C_3H_6(g)+2NH_3(g)+3O_2(g)\rightarrow2C_3H_3N(g)+6H_2O(g)

If 15.0 g C3H6, 10.0 g O2, and 5.00 g NH3 are reacted, what mass of acrylonitrile can be produced, assuming 100% yield?

                                                   Step by step solution

Step 1 of 4

The reaction to prepare acrylonitrile is as follows.

                   2C_3H_6(g)+2NH_3(g)+3O_2(g)\rightarrow2C_3H_3N(g)+6H_2O(g)

It is a balanced reaction. From this balanced reaction.

It is obvious that 2 moles of  (propene) reacts with 2 moles of  (ammonia) and 3 moles of  (oxygen) to produce 2 moles of  (acrylonitrile).
