In the experiment, we mix 0.5 ml Furan with a 4 molar sol'n of maleic anhydride in methylene chloride.
We know that the maleic anhydride is the limiting reagent but we are to show how many moles we are to add. Due to the fact that this was our first lab day, we were told to add ~2 to 2.5 ml of the anhydride solution.
I'm confused at finding the number of moles b/c of the chloride also added to it. My calculations don't give me the maleic anhydride as the limiting reagent. Where do I start?
