2kbr(aq)+cl2(aq)>2kcl(aq)+br2(l) When 0.855g of cl2 and 3.205g of kbr are mixed in solution, which is the limiting reactant?
shows that for every
For maximal yield and no excess reactants, the molar ratio
However, when you calculate the moles of each reactant,
The molar ratio
That means there are more moles of
Then it follows that
