Potassium permanganate reacts with sulfuric acid as per the equation shown below. Indicate the amount of excess reactant after the reaction of 7.24g KMnO4 and 10.32g H2SO4? 4KMnO4+6H2SO4 = 2K2SO4 +4MnSO4 +6H2O + 5O2
Calculate moles KMnO4 and convert to moles of the product.
Calculate moles H2SO4 and convert to moles of the product.
The smaller number of moles of the product is the correct value and the material producing that value is the limiting reagent.
