In the equation #N_2(g) + 3H_2(g) -> 2NH_3(g)#, 8.5 grams of hydrogen and 15.8 grams of nitrogen react to form ammonia. How many grams of ammonia are produced?
Find the limiting reagent.
Dihydrogen is the reagent in excess (clearly!). Given that dinitrogen is the limiting reagent, at most I can form
If I have formed
You might already know that this is probably the most important reaction on the planet. An industrialist would have an orgasm if he could achieve such yields.
