A step by step guide to make you a Stoichiometry PROOO!!!!
When balancing a reaction you have to make sure the number of atoms on the left equals the number of atoms on the right, and you do this by looking at the original equation and then adding the correct Subscripts and Coefficients in order to make it even.
The individual Reactants
Molar mass for each reactant and product
The Molar mass is the grams per mole, and it is found by looking at the periodic table and using the subscripts as a multiplier of the number on the periodic table.
Mole to mole conversions
Mass to Mass conversions
Limiting and excess reactant
To find it,you use the limiting reactant and follow the diagram, then use the answer as the given for the 2nd equation. You use the same steps for the 2nd equation as you do for the 1st. After you solve the 2nd equation and get an answer, you compare both the 1st and 2nd answer, and the smaller number is your theoretical yield. The answer should be 6.3295.
