GOAL(s): Use a balanced chemical equation to:
- Calculate the amount of one reactant or product from the amount of another reactant or product.
balanced chemical equation: a chemical equation that shows equal
numbers of atoms of each kind in the products and the reactants.
stoichiometric factor (mole ratio): a factor relating moles of desired
compound to moles of available reagent.
stoichiometry: the study of the quantitative relations between amounts
of reactants and products.
stoichiometric coefficients: the multiplying numbers assigned to
the species in a chemical equation in order to balance the equation.
