(a) Interpretation: The mass of acrylonitrile which can be produced from the reactants given should be determined. Concept Introduction: To determine how much product can be formed from a given mixture of reactants, we have to look for the reactant that is limiting; the one that runs out first and thus limits the amount of product that can form. The reactant that runs out first limiting the amount of products form is called the limiting reactant or limiting reagent.

Solutions

Chapter 9, Problem 100CP
Interpretation Introduction

(a)

Interpretation:

The mass of acrylonitrile which can be produced from the reactants given should be determined.

Concept Introduction:

To determine how much product can be formed from a given mixture of reactants, we have to look for the reactant that is limiting; the one that runs out first and thus limits the amount of product that can form. The reactant that runs out first limiting the amount of products form is called the limiting reactant or limiting reagent.

Interpretation Introduction

(b)

Interpretation:

Mass of water formed from the mixture should be calculated.

Concept Introduction:

Molar mass=Mass of the sample in gramsNumber of moles

Mass of the sample in grams = Number of moles × Molar mass.

Interpretation Introduction

(c)

Interpretation:

Mass of each reactant after the reaction is complete should be calculated.

Concept Introduction:

Molar mass=Mass of the sample in gramsNumber of moles

Mass of the sample in grams = Number of moles × Molar mass.
