Solving this problem helps the student to understand how to find the limiting reactant (alternate method) and how to find theoretical yield.
4 CH3NH2(g) + 9 O2(g) → 4 CO2(g) + 10 H2O(g) + 2 N2(g)
assume 321 grams of methylamine (CH3NH2) and 475 grams of oxygen are mixed together.
a. How many grams of water should be produced?
b. What is the theoretical yield of nitrogen?
