What do you understand by limiting reactant?
When in reaction, one rectant is in excess over the other. The reactant which is present in the lesser amount gets consumed after sometimes and after no further reaction takes place whatever be the amount of the other reactant present. Hence, the reactant which gets consumed, limits the amount of product formed and, therefore, called the liminting reagent.
Define molality (m).
The rules for rounding off the non significant figures in the measurements are as under:
1. If the digit following the last digit to be retained is less than 5, the last digit is left unchanged. For example,
4·22 is rounded off to 4·2
4·14 is rounded off to 4·1
4·34 is rounded off to 4·3
2. If the last digit happens to be five (as in 4·335), then a digit before five is checked whether it is odd or even.
If it is odd, then it is increased by one. e.g.
4·335 is rounded off to 4·34
15·275 is rounded off to 15·28
If the digit before five is even, then it is retained as such. e.g.,
14·145 is rounded off to 14·14
6·225 is rounded off to 6·22
0·085 is rounded off to 0·08
3. If the last digit is greater than 5, the last-digit to be retained is increased by one. e.g.,
2·26 is rounded off to 2·3
4·68 is rounded off to 4·7
16·59 is rounded off to 16·6
