I have this information from a lab handout
.40g of NH2 = .25 mol NH2
.58g of (CH3CO)2O = .0092 mol (CH3CO)2O
and the reaction
NH2 + (CH3CO)2O---> HNCOCH3 + CH3COOH
I need to find the limiting reactant
I know that since the only product with N on the right hand side is HNCOCH3 so ALL of its N must have come from the NH2
I am just not sure how to "test" the reactant (CH3CO)2O ? Both products contain all of those elements?
