Over the years, the thermite reaction has been used for welding railroad rails, in incendiary bombs, and to ignite solid-fuel rocket motors. The reaction is: Fe2O3 + Al → Fe + Al2O3
If there are 798.2 g of Fe2O3 and 797.5 g of Al
a. Which is the limiting reactant? Which is the excess?
b. How much iron is produced in the reaction?
