CO + 2*H2 --> CH3OH

How many moles of each reactant are needed to produce 3.60 x 10^2g CH3OH?

I appreciate anyone who helps me with this. Also, please say the steps on how you got your answer.

Balance the equation. I think it is balanced.

Convert 360 g CH3OH to mols CH3OH.

mols = g/molar mass CH3OH.

Use the coefficients in the balanced equation to convert mols CH3OH to mols CO and do a separate one to convert to mols H2.

Post your work if you get stuck but explain what you don't understand.
