Problem: Methanol (CH3OH) can be produced by the following reaction:CO(g) + 2H2(g) → CH3OH(g)Hydrogen at STP flows into a reactor at a rate of 16.0 L/min. Carbon monoxide at STP flows into the reactor at a rate of 25.0 L/min. If 5.30 g methanol is produced per minute, what is the percent yield of the reaction?
