Limiting Reactant Animation (22 Favorites)

ANIMATION in Stoichiometry, Conservation of Mass, Limiting Reactant, Mole Concept, Animations. Last updated August 17, 2019.


In this animation, students will visualize on the particulate level what happens in a limiting reactant problem. A number of limiting reactant scenarios are animated, including a simple example of how to build a bike to introduce the concept of limiting reactant. Conservation of mass is also demonstrated by calculating masses from the mole quantities of the reactants and products. **This video has no audio**
