Michael Patino 01115539 Chem 1122-Trupta Experiment 5- Limiting Reactants How Much BaSo4 Can We Make? Objective / Aim of the lab- The objective of this lab is to allow the experimenter to able to write and balance chemical equations. This is extremely important to know especially when beginning to work with problems. Furthermore, when a chemical equation is balanced, this lab emphasized performing calculations involving limiting reactants, theoretical yield, actual yield, and percent yield. These can be calculated using formulas and procedures given in the lab manual. The objective of our experiment was to combine sulfuric acid and aqueous barium chloride to produce a precipitate, barium sulfate and hydrochloric acid. Introduction/background information- In the beginning of our lab, my partner and I were asked how many pizzas could be made if 1 pizza = 1 crust + 5 oz tomato sauce + 2 cups cheese. We were given 4 crusts, 10 cups cheese, 15 oz tomato sauce. The idea of this scenario was to find the limiting reactant, so we could
