    72.1 L O2 / 22.4 L/mol = 3.22 mol O2

    108 g Fe / 55.845 g/mol = 1.93 mol Fe

    1.93 mol Fe X (3 mol O2/4 mol Fe) = 1.45 mol O2 to react completely with available Fe. So, Fe is the limiting reactant

    1.93 mol Fe X (2 mol Fe2O3 / 4 mol Fe) X 6.022X10^23 FU/mol = 5.82X10^23 formula units Fe2O3

    4 Fe + 3 O2 = 2 Fe2O3 

    108/ 55.845 moles of Fe + 72.1 / 22.4 moles of O2 react 

    1.93 moles of Fe react with 1.45 mol od O2 according to the equation

    but we have 3.22 moles so Fe is in excess and forms 1.93/ 2 moles of the oxide

    in this case formula units of Fe2O3 formed = 0.967 formula units
