Limiting factors are factors that will prevent the rate of something from progressing. For instance, in photosynthesis, carbon dioxide is a limiting factor as the amount of it changes the rate of photosynthesis.

On a graph, you can tell which is the limiting factor as when concentrations of it increase, the rate (or value up y-axis) will also increase.
