Explains how to calculate which reactant is limiting based on molar ratios of reactants.
Reviews how to determine which reactant is limiting using the molar ratios of reactants.
Practice Determining the Limiting Reactant questions
The idea of a limiting reagent in a chemical reaction is explored. Limiting factors in other types of processes are described.
Two practice problems about identifying the limiting reagent, solving for the amount of product that will form, and solving for how much excess reagent is left.
