Iron ore consists mainly of iron III oxide. When iron III oxide is heated with an excess of coke(carbon), iron metal and carbon monoxide are produced. Assume that even if an excess of coke is not present that the reaction proceeds as described.
A)write a balanced equation for the above reaction.
B) If you started with 3.19g of iron III oxide and 1.00g of coke, how many grams of carbon monoxide would you theoretically obtain?
C. what is the limiting reactant????
D. if you only obtained 1.25g of carbon monoxide, what is your percent yield for this reaction?
Please do not double post. I have answered your question below.
