Asked Sep 23, 2019
Which reagent is the limiting reactant when 0.400 mol Al(OH)3 and 0.400 mol H2SO4 are allowed to react?
How many moles of Al2(SO4)3 can form under these conditions?
How many moles of the excess reactant remain after the completion of the reaction?

Expert Answer

Step 1

The term limiting reagent in a given chemical reaction refers to the species which totally gets consumed in the given chemical reaction.

Step 2

The term number of moles can be defined as the ratio of mass to the molar mass of the given compound. The chemical formula is as shown below:
