Stoichiometric Calculations

Stoichiometric calculations

Earlier, you learnt how to write balanced chemical equations and started looking at stoichiometric calculations. By knowing the ratios of substances in a reaction, it is possible to use stoichiometry to calculate the amount of either reactants or products that are involved in the reaction.

The following figure highlights the relation between the balanced chemical equation and the number of moles:

Earlier, we explored some of the concepts of stoichiometry. We looked at how to calculate the number of moles of a substance and how to find the molar mass. We also looked at how to find the molecular and empirical formulae of substances. Now we will explore more of these concepts such as limiting reagents, percent purity and percent yield.
