48 g of Mg requires 32 g of O2
1 g of Mg requires 32/48 = 0.66 g of O2
Oxygen available = 0.5 g
Hence, O2 is limiting reagent.
32 g of O2 reacts with 48 g of Mg
0.5 g of O2 will react with 48/32 x 0.5 = 0.75 g of Mg
Excess of Mg = (1.0 - 0.75) = 0.25 g

48 g of Mg requires 32 g of O21 g of Mg requires 32/48 = 0.66 g of O2Oxygen available = 0.5 gHence, O2 is limiting reagent.32 g of O2 reacts with 48 g of Mg0.5 g of O2 will react with 48/32 x 0.5 = 0.75 g of MgExcess of Mg = (1.0 - 0.75) = 0.25 g
