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.
