Limiting Reactant

Chemistry classes learn the importance of a limiting reactant by first considering a cake recipe. Given the recipe and the total amount available for each ingredient, they must calculate how many cakes can be made. Finally, they apply this exercise to the photosynthesis reaction. The presentation offers a brief introduction, but you will definitely want to follow it with other examples of limiting reactants within their reactions.
