Why 10 g of hydrogen gas when reacted with 10 g of oxygen gas, not give 20 g of water should be explained and the mass of water produced with a complete reaction should be determined. Concept Introduction: The amount of product obtained in a reaction depends on the amount of limiting reactant in the reaction. Limiting reactant is the reactant that completely consumes in the chemical reaction. The amount of product formed can be calculated from its number of moles which can be calculated by comparing the number of moles of limiting reactant in a balanced chemical reaction.
