Ti(s) + 2 F2 → TiF4
Calculate the amount of TiF4 produced from each reactant and determine the limiting reactant:
mass Ti (molar mass) → moles Ti (mole-to-mole comparison) → moles TiF4 (molar mass) → mass TiF4
molar mass Ti = 47.867 g/mol
molar mass TiF4 = 123.867 g/mol
mass TiF4 = 6.47 g
mass F2 (molar mass) → moles F2 (mole-to-mole comparison) → moles TiF4 (molar mass) → mass TiF4
For the reaction
Ti(s) + 2F2 → TiF4
compute the theoretical yield of the product (in grams) for each of the following initial amounts of reactants.
2.5 g Ti, 1.7 g F2
