The given chemical equation should be balanced and which reactant is the limiting reactant should be determined. Answer should be chosen from the multiple answers given.
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. In order to determine limiting reactant, first the known masses of reactants should be converted into moles. Then according to the balanced equation, how many moles will be consumed should be calculated. Then limiting reactant is determined.
