    N2 + O2 ==> 2NO
    How many moles NO would form if we used all of the N2 and all of the O2 we needed. That is 0.590 x (2 moles NO/1 mole N2) = 1.18 moles NO formed.

    How many moles NO would form if we used all of the O2 and all of the N2 we needed. That will be
    0.139 x (2 moles NO/1 mol O2) = 0.278 moles NO.

    Both answer CAN'T be right, of course. The correct answer in limiting reagent problems is ALWAYS the smaller number. Therefore, O2 is the limiting reagent and 0.278 mol NO will be formed. If you want grams, that is g = moles x molar mass.
