Magnesium oxide can be made by heating magnesium metal in
the presence of oxygen. The balanced equation for the
2 Mg(s) + O2( g)¡2 MgO(s)
When 10.1 g of Mg reacts with 10.5 g O2, 11.9 g MgO is collected.
Determine the limiting reactant. Determine the theoretical yield. Determine the percent yield for the reaction.
