Solution: Trinitrotoluene (TNT) is manufactured by reaction of toluene with nitric acid. C7 H8  (s) + 3 HNO3 (l) → C7 H5 N3 O6 (s) + 3 H2 O(g) Given 100 moles of each reactant, which is the limiting reactant?

Problem

Trinitrotoluene (TNT) is manufactured by reaction of toluene with nitric acid.

CH8  (s) + 3 HNO(l) → CHNO(s) + 3 HO(g)

Given 100 moles of each reactant, which is the limiting reactant?

1. CH8

2. HNO3

3. HO

4. CHNO6
