Solution: Elemental phosphorus reacts with chlorine gas according to the equation:P4(s) + 6 Cl2(g) → 4 PCl3(l)A reaction mixture initially contains 45.53 g P4 and 131.1 g Cl2.Once the reaction has occurred as completely as possible, what mass (in g) of the excess reactant remains?

Problem

Elemental phosphorus reacts with chlorine gas according to the equation:

P4(s) + 6 Cl2(g 4 PCl3(l)

A reaction mixture initially contains 45.53 g P4 and 131.1 g Cl2.

Once the reaction has occurred as completely as possible, what mass (in g) of the excess reactant remains?
