    The first step in the Oswald process for producing nitric acid is:
    4NH3(g) + 5O2(g) > 4NO(g) + 6H2O(g)

    If the reaction of 150 g of ammonia with 150 g of oxygen gas yields 87g of nitric oxide(NO), what is the percent yield of this reaction?

    The first step in the Oswald process for producing nitric acid is:
    4NH3(g) + 5O2(g) > 4NO(g) + 6H2O(g)
    If the reaction of 150 g of ammonia with 150 g of oxygen gas yields 87g of nitric oxide(NO), what is the percent yield of this reaction?

    Solution:

    First, we need to determine whether ammonia or oxygen is the limiting reagent.

    O2 is the limiting reagent.

    We can now based on the amount of limiting reagent O2 to determine the theoretical yield of nitric oxide.

    Now, we can find the percent yield.
