Based on the balanced equation

C4H8 + 6O2 → 4CO2 + 4H2O

calculate the number of excess reagent units remaining when 44 C4H8 molecules and 228 O2 molecules react?


Expert Answer

Step 1

Given that,

The equation is

СН, +60, > 4Cо, +4H,0

Step 2

It means 1 mole of  C4H8 react with 6 mole of oxygen.

So 44 molecule of C4H8 react with

6x44=264 of O,

Step 3

While only 228 oxygen molecules are present, that means O2 is a limiting reagent

So, C4H8 is t...
