Ammonia (NH 3 ) reacts with the oxygen in the air to produce nitrogen monoxide and water. Write balanced equations for each of these reactions. 60
Limiting Reactants Limiting reactant the reactant that is consumed first and therefore limits the amounts of products that can be formed. Determine which reactant is limiting to calculate correctly the amounts of products that will be formed. 61
Limiting Reactants Methane and water will react to form products according to the equation: CH 4 + H 2 O 3H 2 + CO 62 CH 4 + H 2 O react in a 1: 1 ratio If I react 1 mole of CH 4 with 1 mole of H 2 O, how many moles of CO do I make? If I react 2 moles of CH 4 with 1 mole of H 2 O, how many moles of CO do I make?
Mixture of 6CH 4 and 9H 2 O Molecules Reacting 63 Reaction stops once the methane is all gone limiting reagent
Limiting Reactants: reacting 6CH 4 with 9H 2 O The amount of products that can form is limited by the methane. Methane is the limiting reactant. Water is in excess. 64
Note We cannot simply add the total moles of all the reactants to decide which reactant mixture makes the most product. We must always think about how much product can be formed by using what we are given, and the ratio in the balanced equation. 65
