Ammonia (NH3) is prepared commercially by the reaction:

N2   +   3 H 2   →   2 NH 3

If 4.00 moles of N 2 and 8.0 moles of H 2 are mixed together and allowed to react, what is the limiting reagent and how many moles of the other reactant will remain after all of the limiting reagent has reacted?

A. N2 is the limiting reagent and 0.67 moles of H 2 will remain

B. H2 is the limiting reagent and 1.0 moles of N 2 will remain

C. N2 is the limiting reagent and 6.0 moles of H 2 will remain

D. H2 is the limiting reagent and 1.33 moles of N 2 will remain

E. H2 is the limiting reagent and 0.67 moles of N 2 will remain
