    Given a initial concentration you can solve for the theoretical yield of 1 product whethet it be 2Fe or 3CO2 in this reaction. Whichever reactant produces the least amount of product is the limiting reagent and will be used up first in the reaction.

    I found out how to do it by this youtube video that gives good examples https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IvCPLCQ-YK0 3.2 molFe x 1 mol Fe2O3/2 mol Fe= 3.2 mol 2.3 molCO x 1 molFe2O3/ 3 mol CO = 0.7666 CO is the limiting reactant thanks everyone:)
