Stoichiometry: Volume-Volume Calculations The coefficients in a chemical reaction involving gases indicate the relative number of ____________ and the relative _________________. Example 1 : What will be the volume, in liters, of oxygen gas required for the complete combustion of 0.350 L of C 3 H 8 ? C 3 H 8 + 5 O 2 3 CO 2 + 4H 2 O Example 2 : Calculate the volume of CO 2 resulting from the combustion of 6.0 L of C 2 H 6 . 2 C 2 H 6 (g) + 7 O 2 (g) 4 CO 2 (g) + 6 H 2 O(g) Stoichiometry: Limiting Reactant (a) What is a limiting reactant? The limiting reactant is the reactant that ___________ the amounts of the other reactants that can combine – and the amount of product that can form – in a chemical reaction (the reactant that runs out __________). The reaction will stop once the limiting reactant is used up. (b) What is an excess reactant? The _____________ reactant in a chemical reaction is the substance that is _______ used up completely in a chemical reaction (the reactant that you have leftovers of).
