Answer to Question #17021 in Other Chemistry for Griselda
Balance equation for aluminum acetate and ammonium phosphate. If there is 12.579 g of aluminum acetate and 10.326 g of ammonium phosphate what is the theoretical yield? What is the limiting reagent?
(CH3COO)3Al + (NH4)3PO4 = 3AlPO4 + 3CH3COONH4
(CH3COO)3Al =12.579/204.114=0.06163 mol
n of (NH4)3PO4 = 10.326/149.087=
0.06926 mol ( (NH4)3PO4 in excess,so (CH3COO)3Al is limiting reagent )
