Solution: Uranium can be isolated from its ores by dissolving it as UO 2(NO3)2, then separating it as solid UO2(C2O4)∙3H2O. Addition of 0.4031 g of sodium oxalate, Na 2C2O4, to a solution containing 1.481 g of

Problem

Uranium can be isolated from its ores by dissolving it as UO 2(NO3)2, then separating it as solid UO2(C2O4)∙3H2O. Addition of 0.4031 g of sodium oxalate, Na 2C2O4, to a solution containing 1.481 g of uranyl nitrate, UO2(NO3)2, yields 1.073 g of solid UO2(C2O4)∙3H2O.

Na2C2O4 + UO2(NO3)2 + 3H2O ⟶ UO2(C2O4)∙3H2O + 2NaNO3

Determine the limiting reactant and the percent yield of this reaction.
