Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

For the given equation, if 4 moles of A is reacted with 2 moles of B, then the correct statement is to be predicted. The reason behind the incorrect statements is to be stated.

Concept Introduction:

Limiting reagent is the reactant in the chemical reaction which is completely consumed. The amount of product and the excess reactant left in a reaction is determined on the basis of limiting reagent only.

### Explanation of Solution

Reason for true statements: Possibility 1 is correct as in possibility 2 there are negative numbers of moles of A which is not possible.

The mole ratio for A to C or D is 3:1, that is for three moles of A one mole of both C and D are formed. The mole ratio for B to C or D is 1:1, that is for one mole of B one mole of both C and D are formed.

There are two possibilities for the limiting reagent in the given reaction.

Possibility 1

3A+BC+DBefore     4     2      0     0Change 41.34+1.34+1.34After        0         0.66      1.341.34

In this case, A is considered as limiting reagent
