Answer to Question #21050 in Inorganic Chemistry for Secretly
What is the limiting reagent and what is the quantity of SiC results from the reaction of 1.0g of Si and 0.5g of C? at, mass of Si= 28.08g/mol
n(Si)= 1g/28.08g/mol = 0.0356 mol
n(C) = 0.5g/12g/mol = 0.0416 mol
Si + C = SiC
the limiting reagent - Si, because silicon in excess.
