Solutions of sodium carbonate and silver nitrate react to form solid silver carbonate and a solution of sodium nitrate. A solution containing 3.60 g of sodium carbonate is mixed with one containing 5.14 g of silver nitrate.

Reactants:

sodium carbonate solution → Na2CO3(aq)
silver nitrate solution → AgNO3(aq)

Products:

solid silver carbonate  → Ag2CO3(s)
sodium nitrate solution → NaNO3(aq)

Balanced reaction:   Na2CO3(aq) + 2 AgNO3(aq) → Ag2CO3(s) + 2 NaNO3(aq)

Determine the limiting reactant.

NaNO3(aq) from Na2CO3(aq):

molar mass NaNO3 = 85.00 g/mol
molar mass Na2CO3 = 106.00 g/mol
