Problem 7

The limiting reactant in a reaction: a. has the lowest coefficient in a balanced equation. b. is the reactant for which you have the fewest number of moles. c. has the lowest ratio: moles available/coefficient in the balanced equation. d. has the lowest ratio: coefficient in the balanced equation/moles available. d. None of the above. For choices you did not pick, explain what you feel is wrong with them, and justify the choice you did pick.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

CHAPTER ONE: ATOMS MATTER  Matter – anything that takes up space and has mass  Composed of particles  Structure determines the properties  Atoms are the building blocks of matter  2+ atoms = molecule  Early ideas of matter - Leucippus and Democritus – first to propose the definition of matter - John Dalton – evidence supported Leucippus and Democritus States of Matter  Solid - Atoms/molecules pack closely together - Vibrate but don’t move past each other - Fixed volume/shape  Liquid - Atoms/molecules pack close but able to move past each other - Fixed volume but no fixed shape - Assume shape of container  Gas - A lot of space between atoms/molecules
