if 2.0 grams of sodium sulfate are mixed with 2.0 grams of calcium chloride to produce calcium sulfate as a precipitate, which compound is the limiting reactant

asked by Anonymous
  1. Write and balance the equation.
    Convert g CaCl2 to mols
    Convert g Na2SO4 to mols.

    Use the coefficients in the balanced equation to convert mols CaCl2 to mols CaSO4.
    Do the same for mols Na2SO4 to mols CaSO4.
    The SMALLER value is the correct value to choose for the mols CaSO4 produced and the reagent producing that value is the limiting regent.
