## The numbers in the front are called

stoichiometric coefficients
The letters (s), (g), and (l) are the
physical states of compounds.

Chemical Equations
4 Al(s) + 3 O2(g) 2 Al2O3(s) This equation means

## 4 Al atoms + 3 O2 molecules 2 molecules of Al2O3

4 moles of Al + 3 moles of O2 2 moles of Al2O3

Chemical Equations
Because the same atoms are present in a reaction at the beginning and at the end, the amount of matter in a system does not change. The Law of the Conservation of Matter

Chemical Equations
Because of the principle of the

## conservation of matter, an equation must be balanced.

It must have the same number of atoms of the same kind on both sides.

STOICHIOMETRY
- the study of the quantitative aspects of chemical reactions.

PROBLEM: If 454 g of NH4NO3 decomposes, how much H2O and N2O are formed? What is the theoretical yield of products?

STEP 1
Write the balanced chemical equation

NH4NO3

N2O + 2 H2O

13

## 454 g of NH4NO3 --> N2O + 2 H2O

STEP 2
Convert reactant mass to moles (454 g) --> moles

14

## 454 g of NH4NO3 --> N2O + 2 H2O

STEP 3
Convert moles reactant --> moles product. Relate moles NH4NO3 to moles product.

## 1 mol NH4NO3 --> 2 mol H2O

Express this relation as the

STOICHIOMETRIC FACTOR

15

## 454 g of NH4NO3 --> N2O + 2 H2O

STEP 3
Convert moles reactant (5.68 mol) moles product
2 mol H 2O produced 5.68 mol NH 4NO 3 1 mol NH 4NO 3 used
= 11.4 mol H2O produced

16

## 454 g of NH4NO3 --> N2O + 2 H2O

STEP 4
Convert moles product (11.4 mol) to mass product. This is called the

17

## 454 g of NH4NO3 --> N2O + 2 H2O

STEP 4
Convert moles prod. (11.4 mol) to mass prod.
18 . 02 g 11.4 mol H 2 O = 204 g H2O 1 mol This is the Expected Mass! ALWAYS FOLLOW THESE STEPS IN SOLVING STOICHIOMETRY PROBLEMS! Repeat to find the grams of N2O formed.

18

## 454 g of NH4NO3 --> N2O + 2 H2O

STEP 5
How much N2O is formed?
Total mass of reactants=total mass of products

## 454 g NH4NO3 = ___ g N2O + 204 g H2O

mass of N2O = 250. g

19

## 454 g of NH4NO3 --> N2O + 2 H2O

STEP 6
Calculate the percent yield.
If you isolated only 131 g of N2O, what is the percent yield? This compares the theoretical (250. g) and actual (131 g) yields.

20

## 454 g of NH4NO3 --> N2O + 2 H2O

STEP 6
Calculate the percent yield.
actual yield % yield = 100% theoretical yield 131 g % yield = 100% = 52.4% 250. g

## Step 2: use STOICHIOMETRIC FACTOR to calculate moles of O2

Step 3: mass of O2 Repeat for H2O.

28

Step 1 of LR problem: compare actual mole ratio of reactants to theoretical mole ratio.

29

Step 1 of LR problem: compare actual mole ratio of reactants to theoretical mole ratio.

## 2 Al + 3 Cl2 ---> Al2Cl6

Reactants must be in the mole ratio

30

2 Al + 3 Cl2
If

Al2Cl6

## mol Cl2 3 > mol Al 2

then there is not enough Al to use up all the Cl2, and the limiting reagent is

Al.

31

If

## mol Cl2 3 < mol Al 2

then there is not enough Cl2 to use up all the Al, and the limiting reagent is

Cl2

32

## We have 5.40 g of Al and 8.10 g of Cl2

1 mol 5.40 g Al = 0.200 mol Al 27.0 g 1 mol 8.10 g Cl 2 = 0.114 mol Cl 2 70.9 g

33

## Find mole ratio of reactants

mol Cl2 0.114 mol = mol Al 0.200 mol

= 0.57

This should be 3/2 or 1.5/1 if reactants are present in the exact stoichiometric ratio.
Limiting reagent is

Mix 5.40 g of Al with 8.10 g of Cl2. What mass of Al2Cl6 can form?

35

## CALCULATIONS: calculate mass of Al2Cl6 expected.

Step 1: Calculate moles of Al2Cl6 expected based on LR.
0.114 mol Cl2 1 mol Al 2Cl 6 = 0.0380 mol Al2Cl 6 3 mol Cl2

## Step 2: Calculate mass of Al2Cl6 expected based on LR.

266.4 g Al 2Cl6 0.0380 mol Al 2Cl6 = 10.1 g Al 2Cl6 mol

36

## How much of which reactant will remain when reaction is complete?

Cl2 was the limiting reactant. Therefore, Al was present in excess.

## But how much?

First find how much Al was required. Then find how much Al is in excess.

37

Calculating Excess Al
2 Al + 3 Cl2
products

## 0.200 mol 0.114 mol = LR

38

Calculating Excess Al
2 Al + 3 Cl2
0.200 mol products

0.114 mol = LR
2 mol Al = 0.0760 mol Al req' d 3 mol Cl2

## = 0.200 mol - 0.0760 mol

= 0.124 mol Al in excess

41

42

## Using Stoichiometry to Determine a Formula

CxHy + some oxygen 0.379 g CO2 + 0.1035 g H2O

First, recognize that all C in CO2 and all H in H2O is from CxHy.

Calculate moles of C in CO2 8.61 x 10-3 mol C Calculate moles of H in H2O 1.149 x 10 -2 mol H

## Using Stoichiometry to Determine a Formula

43

Now find ratio of mol H/mol C to find values of x and y in CxHy. 1.149 x 10 -2 mol H/ 8.61 x 10-3 mol C = 1.33 mol H / 1.00 mol C = 4 mol H / 3 mol C

## = 99.7g KCl 74.6 g KCl mole KCl

= 102 g KCl

STEP 4
Determine the limiting reactant and the actual amount of product.
KOH + HCl 75.0 g 50.0 g --> KCl + HOH ?g

98

## 75.0 g KOH can produce 99.7 g KCl

KOH is the limiting reactant, HCl is the excess reactant.

## 50.0 g HCl can produce 102 g KCl

99.7 g KCl

STEP 5
Determine the amount of excess reactant by calculating the amount used and subtracting from the starting amount.
KOH + HCl 75.0 g 50.0 g --> KCl + HOH ?g
