Unformatted text preview: 1. Fe 2 O 3 2Fe 2. Theoretical Yield a. 10.49 kg 3. Percent Yield a. 8.8/10.5 = 83.9% III) Lim iting Reactants a. Identifying the Lim iting Reactants i. Step 1: Balance the equation ii. Step 2: Find the number of moles of each reactant present iii. Step 3: Determine the number of moles of each reactant needed to completely use one reactant 1. You will either have more than enough of the other reactant or one or more reactants will not be present in large enough amounts 2. The compound which is “short” by the largest amount is the lim iting reactant b. Example i. 100 g of CaC 2 is mixed with 100 g of water. Which is the limiting reactant?...
