Identify limiting reactants (maximum product method).

Consider the reaction of ruthenium(III) iodide with carbon dioxide and silver.

RuI3 (s) + 5CO (g) + 3Ag (s) → Ru(CO)5 (s) + 3AgI (s)

Determine the limiting reactant in a mixture containing 114 g of RuI3, 38.6 g of CO, and 114 g of Ag. Calculate the maximum mass (in grams) of ruthenium pentacarbonyl, Ru(CO)5, that can he produced in the reaction.

The limiting reactant is:

(a) CO

(b) Ag

(c) RuI3

Amount of Ru(CO)5 formed -
