Stoichiometry Tutorials: Part 15 - Limiting Reagents (from a complete OLI stoichiometry course)
We are now ready to pull everything we know about reaction stoichiometry together, and answer the question: Given some initial amount of reactants, what should be present after a chemical reaction goes to completion? The procedure for answering this question is often called the "limiting reagent problem." You'll see why this name is appropriate in the following video.
Use this information to answer the questions below.
You may now try a tutor on determining the chemical remediation of arsenic.
These tutorials are part of a set of equilibrium materials developed with the Open Learning Initiative at Carnegie Mellon University. To access the entire course, please see http://www.cmu.edu/oli/courses/enter_chemistry.html.
