Calculate the amount of product that can be formed by the initial amount of each reactant. (A) The reactant that gives the smaller amount of product is the limiting reactant. (B) The smaller amount of product is the amount that will be formed when the limiting reactant is used up. Calculate the amount of the non-limiting reactant that is needed to use up the limiting reactant. Subtract the amount of non-limiting reactant needed to use up the limiting reactant from the original amount of non-limiting reactant. The difference is the excess amount of the non-limiting reactant....
