Limiting Reactants

Postby Blanca Cervantes » Thu Jun 27, 2019 10:43 pm

Will professor Lavelle expect us to know the formula for, say, calcium hydroxide and ethyne in limiting reactant problems?

No need for any memorization of the names of any compounds. They will be provided in the question.

For the examples you provided Professor lavelle does not expect us to know the molecular formula, but for common things like diatomic molecules and water and carbon dioxide we may need to know what they are.

No he stated in lecture that anything like that would be provided in the question/problem assigned.

I has this similar question, I believe some of the homework problems sort of expected us to know this info and I was kind of stuck.

I believe that the professor doesn’t expect us to know in our course, but after we learn these compounds, the name should be known
