4. ### Stoichiometry applied to xN2 + yH2

6.0 moles of N2 thats are mixed with 12.0 moles of H2 according to the following equation: The equation is already balanced: N2(g)+ 3H2(g) yields 2NH3 (g) The questions asks for what is the chemical in excess? is it H2 or N2 I solved the problem but i want to make sure if it is right...
5. ### So far am i correct

idk if i did this correctly so far so here goes. The question states A large rubber ball (8.80 kg) is fired straight down from the roof of a building from a spring loaded mechanism that stored 987 J of elastic potential energy. The building roof is 14.0 meters above ground. The rubber...
