Carbon monoxide gas reacts with hydrogen gas to form methanol via the following reaction:
CO(g) + 2 H2(g) → CH3OH(g)A 1.55 L reaction vessel, initially at 305 K, contains carbon monoxide gas at a partial pressure of 232 mmHg and hydrogen gas at a partial pressure of 376 mmHg .
Identify the limiting reactant and determine the theoretical yield of methanol in grams.
