Stoichiometry help please

Given: 2K + Cl2 = 2KCl

  1. If 0.143 grams of K and 0.236 grams of Cl2 react to form Potassium Chloride, how much Potassium Chloride can be formed? (Hint - you are finding the limiting reactant.)
  2. How much excess reactant is left over?
  3. If 0.200 grams of KCl are actually formed in lab, what is the percent yield? (%yield - actual yield / theoretical yield *100)
