ChemistryIntroductory Chemistry: A Foundation(a) Interpretation: Using Before-Change-After (BCA) tables, the limiting reactant should be determined in the given unbalanced equation, supposing that exactly 15.0 g of each reactant are taken. And mass of each product expected should be calculated assuming that the limiting reactant is completely consumed. 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. To determine limiting reactant, first we should have a balanced equation. Then we include the information in Before-Change-After table. E.g Balanced equation N 2 + 3 H 2 â†’ 2 N H 3 Before Change After Starting amounts of reactants are presented in before row. The change row represents how much of each substance reacts or is produced. The after row represents how much of each substance remain in the final reaction mixture. The ratio of the numbers in the change row has to be the same as the ratio of the coefficients in the balanced equation.Start your trial now! First week only $4.99!*arrow_forward*

Starting amounts of reactants are presented in before row. The change row represents how much of each substance reacts or is produced. The after row represents how much of each substance remain in the final reaction mixture. The ratio of the numbers in the change row has to be the same as the ratio of the coefficients in the balanced equation.
