A mixture of 10.902 g if iron(II) oxide and
6.524 g of aluminum metal is placed in a
crucible and heated in a high temperature
oven, where a reduction of the oxide takes
place:
3 FeO(s) + 2Al(ℓ) ! 3 Fe(ℓ) + Al2O3(s) .
What is the limiting reactant?

What is the maximum amount of iron that
can be produced?

What is the mass of excess reactant remaining in the crucible?
