Urea (CH4N2O) is a common fertilizer that is synthesized by the
reaction of ammonia (NH3) with carbon dioxide:
2 NH3(aq) + CO2(aq)¡CH4N2O(aq) + H2O(l )
In an industrial synthesis of urea, a chemist combines 136.4 kg
of ammonia with 211.4 kg of carbon dioxide and obtains
168.4 kg of urea. Determine the limiting reactant. Determine the theoretical yield of urea. Determine the percent yield for the reaction.
