Solution: Acrylonitrile (C3H3N) is the starting material for many synthetic carpets and fabrics. It is produced by the following reaction:2 C3H6 (g) + 2 NH 3 (g) + 3 O2 (g) → 2 C3H3N (g) + 6 H2O (g)If 15.0 g C3H6, 10.0 g O 2, and 5.00 g NH 3 are reacted, what mass of acrylonitrile can be produced, assuming 100% yield?

Problem

Acrylonitrile (C3H3N) is the starting material for many synthetic carpets and fabrics. It is produced by the following reaction:

2 C3H6 (g) + 2 NH 3 (g) + 3 O2 (g) → 2 C3H3N (g) + 6 H2O (g)

If 15.0 g C3H6, 10.0 g O 2, and 5.00 g NH 3 are reacted, what mass of acrylonitrile can be produced, assuming 100% yield?
