The reactant which is entirely consumed in the reaction is known as limiting reagent.
In the reaction 2A + 4B → 3C + 4D, when 5 moles of A react with 6 moles of B,
(i) which is the limiting reagent?
(ii) calculate the amount of C formed?
(i) B will be the limiting reagent as it gives a lesser amount of product.
(ii) Let B is completely consumed
4 mol B gives 3 mol C
6 mol B will give 3/4 *6 mol C =4.5 mol C
