If you react 55g of hydrazine and 55g of oxygen gas, what is the maximum moles of nitrogen dioxide gas that can be made and what is the limiting reagent?

  • Chemistry -

    Write the equation and balance it.
    I solve limiting reagent problems by working a simple stoichiometry problem twice; i.e., once with one reagent and the second with the other reagent. Each time you want to calculate the amount of product formed. You will get different answers for the product; the correct answer in limiting reagent problems is ALWAYS the smaller one and the reagent producing that value of the product is the limiting reagent.
