N2(g) + 3H2(g) → 2NH3(g)

Supposed you start with 1.00moles of hydrogen and nitrogen:
a. Which would be the limiting reagent?
b. How many moles of ammonia would be produced?
c. What is the theoretical yield in grams?


Expert Answer

Step 1


Starting with 1 mole of each given reactants, the limiting reagent for the given reaction will be hydrogen. Because observing the given balanced chemical reaction shows that 1 nitrogen requires 3 moles of hydrogen but we have only 1 mole of hydrogen.

Step 2


From balanced chemical reaction it is clear that 3 moles of  hydrogen produces 2 ammonia moles which m...
