Limiting Reactants

Postby 605379296 » Sun Nov 03, 2019 3:13 pm

In a problem, when we find the limiting reactant and convert it to grams, is that the amount of how much is produced as a result?

When you convert the number of moles to grams, its usually the number of grams used in the reaction.

Yea I am pretty sure it is theoretically but in an actual experiment, there could be outside factors and side reactions that take place that could change the actual yield.

Yes, theoretically the amount found in grams should be the same amount present in the products because of the law of conservation of mass.
