The theoretical yield is the amount of product produced by the limiting reactant (i.e. reactant producing the least amount of products).
For the reaction
Mn(s) + O2(g) → MnO2(s)compute the theoretical yield of product (in moles) for each of the following initial amounts of reactants.
5 mol Mn and 5 mol O2
