Problem

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 -
