Question

22.Phosphorus is prepared in a furnace according to the following reaction (I balanced this one for you because it

is somewhat challenging! All work must be shown!)


2 Ca3(PO4)2 (s)+ 6 SiO2 (s)+ 10 C(s)= 6 CaSiO3 (s)+ 10 CO(g)+ P4 (s)


A)When 5.0 grams of Ca3(PO4)2are reacted with 5.0 grams of SiO2 and 5.0 grams of C, which of the reactants is the limiting reagent?

B)What is the theoretical yield of P4, based on the limiting reagent in (A)? (Find the answer in grams!)

C)When 0.85 grams of P4are actually obtained by a student that does this reaction, what is his percent yield of P4?
