# Problem: Silver sulfadiazine burn-treating cream creates a barrier against bacterial invasion and releases antimicrobial agents directly into the wound. If 25.0 g Ag2O is reacted with 50.0 g C10H10N4SO2, what mass of silver sulfadiazine, AgC10H9N4SO2, can be produced, assuming 100% yield?Ag2O (s) + 2 C10H10N4SO2 (s) → 2 AgC10H9N4SO2 (s) + H2O (l)

We need to determine the mass of AgC10H9N4SO2 formed by each reactant. The reactant that forms the lower amount of product is the limiting reactant and will dictate the amount of product formed.

The molar mass of AgC10H9N4SO2 is 107.87 g/mol Ag + 10(12.01 g/mol C) + 9(1.01 g/mol H) + 4(14.01 g/mol N) + 32.07 g/mol S + 2(16.00 g/mol O) = 357.17 g/mol.
