What happens when you remove a reactant from a chemical reaction?

The reaction stops. If you have a reactant that runs out, it's called the limiting reactant. Even if you have plenty of the other reactant (called the excess reactant), your reaction requires both, so once it runs out you will no longer be producing any product.


Define the term limiting agent?

In many chemical reactions, there are two reactants. In nearly every case, one of those two reactants "runs out" first, and at that point, the chemical reaction stops, because in order for it to happen, both reactants must be present to react with each other. As soon as the one reactant runs out, the reaction is over, and you have product(s) and one left over reactant. The reactant that runs out first is the limiting reactant. The leftovers are the excess reactant.


Why does a reaction stop when the limiting reactant is consumed even though there is plenty of the other reactants present?

For a reaction to occur all the reactants are required. If there is no supply of one of the reactants the reaction must stop because there isn't any more of it to keep reacting. When one of the reactants is in low supply or runs out it is called the limiting reactant.


What do you call the reactants that run out first?

Whatever runs out, or gets used up first, is called the limiting reactant (or limiting reagent.)


What is the limiting reagent in a reaction?

The limiting reagent in a reaction is the reactant that runs out first. For example, if you are reacting 10 moles of HCl and 5 moles of NaOH, you will get 5 moles of H20, 5 moles of NaCl, and 5 moles of HCl, because the remaining HCl had nothing to react with. Therefore, the NaOH is the limiting reagent.


Which reagent is the limiting reagent in the reaction?

The one that runs out first in a reaction - is thoroughly accurate. There are quite a few other limiting reagents in limiting reactions - as well.
