Hydrogen cyanide is used in the production of cyanimid fertilisers. It is produced by the
following reaction:
2CH4 + 2NH3 + 3O2  2HCN + 6H2O
(a) How much hydrogen cyanide can be produced starting with 100 kg of each of the
reactants?
(b) Which is the limiting reagent?

  • CHEMISTRY -

    14,188 mol HCN
