Problem

The phosphorus pentoxide used to produce phosphoric acid for cola soft drinks is prepared by burning phosphorus in oxygen.

(a) What is the limiting reactant when 0.200 mol of P4 and 0.200 mol of O2 react according to:

P4 + 5O⟶ P4O10

(b) Calculate the percent yield if 10.0 g of P4O10 is isolated from the reaction.
