Nitric oxide (NO) reacts with oxygen gas to form nitrogen dioxide (NO2), a dark brown gas:
2NO(g) + O2(g) → 2NO2(g)
In one experiment, 0.889 mol of NO is mixed with 0.516 mol of O2. Determine which of the two reactants is the limiting reactant. Calculate also the number of moles of NO2 produced.
Moles of NO2 produced:
