Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.11 mole of NH3 is 34.08 gram. Do I just convert that back into moles?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Then use hydrogen and find the amount of ammonia it can be produced. Ignore nitrogen then.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It can produce 102.24 grams of ammonia.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Dont need grams. My formula is a shorter way.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I did nitrogen again..It would be 56.8 grams of ammonia.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay, so it can produce 3.3 moles of NH3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.05 mol H2 x (2mol NH3/3mol H2)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Makes sense, since 3mol H2 produces 2 mol NH3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Thank you! I was making things more difficult than what was needed!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.05 mol H2 would produce around 3.3 mol NH3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Quick question: How come we used the limiting reactant (H) instead of the excess reactant (N)?

Photon336

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@Meehan98 you always use the limiting reactant to calculate the number of moles and eventually grams of product formed for one simple reason: the limiting reactant runs out first because there is less of it than your reactant that's in excess. once your limiting reactant runs out you cant form any more product because it runs out.

Meehan98

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay, thank you!! That makes sense.

Photon336

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No problem, anytime.. it's just that when one reactant runs out first, think of it this way say we have a reaction in which A+B = c FROM this reaction we need one molecule of A and one of B. to form C. \[A + B > C \] Say if we had 10 molecules of A and only 5 of B. B would be our limiting reactant because we only have 5 molecules of B and from our reaction we need 1 molecule of A and one molecule of B. so because of this B runs out first, we use the number of moles of B to calculate A.

Photon336

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1sorry for that last part we use the number of moles of B and then multiply by the ratio of C/B to get how much C is produced.

Meehan98

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay, what if it's asking how many grams will be produced instead of moles?

Photon336

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So from what we said, you need to identify which reactant runs out first and that's going to be our limiting reactant. then you multiply the number of moles of the limiting reactant by the molar ratio to get your product in moles then you can easily say since we have moles of product we multiply that by the molar mass like this: \[moles*\frac{ (molar mass) g }{ moles }\] = grams of product

Meehan98

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes, it is. Thank you! I'm just having trouble figuring out which is the limited reactant in an equation.

Photon336

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1here is a problem for you completely made up though A molar mass = 10g/mol B molar mass = 5g/mol 20 grams of A react with 10 grams of B to form C. A + 2B > C 1. find me the limiting reagent 2. and how many grams of C are produced.

Photon336

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1FYI this is an important step We have 20 grams of A and 10 grams of B. We must first convert everything to moles. 20grams of A * (1mol/10g) = 2 moles of A 10 grams of B*(1mol/5g) = 2 moles of B

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So this tells us that we have 2 moles of A and two moles of B. we must find out how many moles we NEED for each. to do this we multiply each by the molar ratio. we look at the formula: we have 1 mole of A and 2 moles of B in he equation. so for A we do \[2 A = \frac{ 2B }{ A } = 4 B\] when we do B \[2 B * \frac{ A }{ 2B } = 1 mol of A\] do you notice something? the way I set this

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1We need 4 moles of B and 1 mol of A but how many moles of each do we have?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok, so I think that I use a much more drawn out way of producing the answer than what is needed, but I got B as the limiting reagent and 10 moles of C.

Photon336

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes B is the limiting reagent

Photon336

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1good, how did you get the number of moles of C?

Meehan98
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1But, I still need to convert the moles into grams so that will be 10 moles multiplied by the molar mass (5) = 50?

Meehan98

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I got the number of moles of C by multiplying 5 mol B times the ratio of C/B which is 10.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh lol sorry in my problem i didn't give you the molar mass of C the imaginary compound; let's say the molar mass of C is 5 grams per mole. show me like by writing out the equation of how you get the grams of C

Meehan98

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Based on your explanation above of how to convert from moles to grams of the product, \[\frac{ 5 mol B }{ 1 } X \frac{ mol C }{2 mol B }\] so, I have 10 mol C and you said to multiply that by the molar mass, does that mean by molar mass of C? If so, then I get 50, but I'm still in moles. I'm sorry not quite grasping this yet.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1441916098745:dw well first we have identified the limiting reagent which is B. now we multiply by the molar ratio to find the number of moles of C

Photon336

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Does this make sense?

Meehan98
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes, I was using 5 mol of B when I multiplied the ratio instead of 2.

Photon336

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1okay so put your information together like this LIMITING REAGENT B 2 moles of B Molar ratio of B/C C/2B why did I put B on the bottom?

Meehan98

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Is it because it's the limiting reagent? because I would've written it like: 2molB/1molC

Photon336

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1B was our limiting reagent

Photon336

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and we had 2 moles of B

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Next we must figure out the number of moles of C

Photon336

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[2 mol B * \frac{ C }{ 2B }\] = 1 mol C

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I want you to look at tis last sentence. when we multiplied by the molar ratio we were looking for C, right? so when we set it up we make sure that B is in the denominator and you can see that B cancels out leaving us with C? make sense?

Meehan98

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes, I know how to do that; I just didn't understand now that we have 1 mol C, how to convert to grams like the question asked.

Photon336

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[1 mol * (\frac{ 5 grams }{ mol } ) = \]

Photon336

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1set it up like this general rule \[moles*(\frac{ molar mass grams }{ mol })\]

Meehan98

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So, C would be 5 grams.
