Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If there is a 100% yield you would just be determining the theoretical yield, scroll down to the bottom post of that question

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i took the grams of Ca3P2/MM and H20 and got the limiting agent as the CaP2 and that is a 1:1 ratio with the 2PH3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0once i figure out the ratio is 1:1 then i take the moles of Ca3P2 then multiply by the MM of PH3 to get the grams right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The ratio between Ca3P2 and PH3 isn't 1:1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i thought i compare the P? P2 in the first to 2P in the second?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for every 1 Ca3P2 you produce 2 PH3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{ 6.18 }{ 182.18 }=.033922\] \[\frac{ 9.49 }{ 18 }=.52722\] \[\frac{ .52722 }{ .033922 }=15.542\] 15>6 so Ca3P2 is the limiting reactant right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The way I do it is usually convert moles of reagent to product then see which gives me the least product (0.52722/6)2 = (0.033922/1)2 =

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1doing it this way also gives you the moles of product you have so its not like it is a huge hassle

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you produce 2 PH3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so i should have (.03392)*2 moles of PH3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then i multiply that by the MM of PH3 and i get the right answer. Thank you very much for your time it's clearer now.
