2. Methane (CH4), ammonia (NH3), and oxygen (O2) can react to form hydrogen cyanide (HCN) and water according to this equation:
CH4 + NH3 + O2  HCN + H2O
You have 8 g of methane and 10 g of ammonia in excess oxygen. Answer the following questions:

• What is the balanced equation for this reaction?
• Which reagent is limiting? Explain why.
• How many grams of hydrogen cyanide will be formed? Show your work

    Hydrogen cyanide, HCN, can be made by a two-step process. First, ammonia is reacted with O2 to give nitric oxide, NO. 4 NH3(g) + 5 O2(g) → 4 NO(g) + 6 H2O(g) Then nitric oxide is reacted with methane, CH4. 2 NO(g) + 2 CH4(g) →
