3 FeCl2 + 2 Na3PO4  Fe3(PO4)2 + 6 NaCl

23 g FeCl2 x 1 mole FeCl2 x 2 mole Na3PO4 x 163.94 g Na3PO4
-------------------126.75 g FeCl2 ----3 mole FeCl2 ----1 mole Na3PO4
=
= 20. g Na3PO4 Since we have 41 g Na3PO4, FeCl2 is the limiting reagent.

23 g FeCl2 x 1 mole FeCl2 x 6 mole NaCl x 58.44 g NaCl
-------------------126.75 g FeCl2 ----3 mole FeCl2 ----1 mole NaCl
=
= 21 g NaCl
