    1 mole of B
    2 moles of C

    1. How many moles of A have been formed?
    2. How can you use this to find how many moles of B and C have been used?

    1. 0.6 moles
    (0.5/1 +1/1+2/1)=output

    1. No, you are mistaken. You started with 0.5 moles and ended up with 0.6 moles. 0.1 moles have been formed.

    2. Look at the reaction. How many moles of B or C correspond to 1 mole of A? Then use this information and find the concentrations of B and C.
