Determine the limiting reactant, excess reactant, mass of the product, and the mass of the excess reactant.
The reaction between solid sodium and Iron (III) oxide is one in a series of reactions that inflates an automobile airbag.
6Na(s) + Fe2O3 (s) → 3 Na2O (s) + 2 Fe(s)
If 100.0 g Na and 100.0 g Fe2O3 are used in this reaction, determine:
1. limiting reactant
2. reactant in excess
3. mass of solid iron produced
4. mass of the excess reactant that remains after the reaction is complete
