Title Reactants, Products, and Leftovers Activity 2: Limiting Reactants in Chemical Reactions
Description This can be used with the Java or HTML5 sim, but the images are all from the Java version Learning Goals: Students will be able to: •Predict the amounts of products and leftovers after reaction using the concept of limiting reactant •Predict the initial amounts of reactants given the amount of products and leftovers using the concept of limiting reactant • Translate from symbolic (chemical formula) to molecular (pictorial) representations of matter •Explain how subscripts and coefficients are used to solve limiting reactant problems.
