Determine which is the limiting reactant and the excess reactant by calculating how much product each reactant can produce.
The reactant that produces lesser amount of product is the limiting reactant.
Balanced Reaction: NH3(g) + HCl(g) → NH4Cl(s)
Ammonia, NH3(g), and hydrogen chloride, HCl(g), react to form solid ammonium chloride, NH4Cl(s):
NH3(g) + HCl(g) → NH4Cl(s)
Two 2.50 L flasks at 30.0 oC are connected by a stopcock, as shown in the drawing
One flask contains 5.60g NH3(g), and the other contains 4.60 g HCl(g). When the stopcock is opened, the gases react until one is completely consumed.
Which gas will remain in the system after the reaction is complete?
