During strenuous exercise, respiration (the reaction between glucose and oxygen, Section 3.5) is limited by the availability of oxygen to the muscles. Under anaerobic conditions, our bodies produce lactic acid, which accumulates in muscles and accompanies the “burning” sensation you may have felt. We can model this situation by considering the reaction between 1.32 g of C_{6}H_{12}O_{6} and 1.32 g of O_{2} to produce CO_{2} and water. Is one of these reactants a limiting reactant, or is the mixture stoichiometric? If one reactant is limiting, which one is it?
