Problem

High-temperature superconducting oxides hold great promise in the utility, transportation, and computer industries. 

(b) Another common superconducting oxide is made by heating a mixture of barium carbonate, copper(II) oxide, and yttrium(III) oxide, followed by further heating in O2: 4BaCO3(s) + 6CuO(s) + Y2O3(s) ⟶ 2YBa2Cu3O6.5(s) + 4CO2(g) 2YBa2Cu3O6.5(s) + 1/2 O2(g) ⟶2YBa2Cu3O7(s) When equal masses of the three reactants are heated, which reactant is limiting?
