In a chemical reaction the limiting reactant is the reactant that there is the least of in the reaction; it determines the amount of product formed. In a chemical reaction it is the reactant that gets completely "used up"
The limiting reagent (aka limiting reactant) is the substance which is completely used in a chemical reaction.
The reactant that is used up first in a reaction.
When the limiting reactant is completely used up. A limiting reactant is the reactant that determines the amount of product. To determine this use the balanced chemical reaction with the masses of the reactants to determine the moles of product formed. The reactant that forms the least amount of product will be the limiting reactant.
No, quite simply, the limiting reactant limits the reaction and determines how much of the products are made. The excess in the reaction is just called the "excess reactant", which still remains after the limiting reactant is used up.
As reactant is used, its concentration decreases and the reaction rate slows.
The amount of product is determined by the limiting reactant. Once one reactant is used completely, no more product can be produced.
The term limiting reactant refers to any reactant that is used up first in a chem reaction. (The limiting reactant determines the amount of product that can be formed).
