Limiting Reactant & Percent Yield

Intro to Limiting Reactants

This topic, also know as limiting reagents, is usually in the same chapter as sthoichiometry. That often creates confusion around these questions because they look an awful lot like stoichiometry problems. So in this video I'll show you how to spot the difference, and I'll show you how to do the various types of question that usually go along with these.

Percent Yield

Yet another question type that is simple algebra on its own but gets confusing for students because it's usually tacked on at the end of a long stoichiometry or limiting reactants problem. Also a favorite for lab reports!
