Chapter Overview

Stoichiometry is the area of chemistry that involves the calculation of amounts of substances used in a chemical reaction from knowledge of the balanced equation. The simplest stoichiometry problems use only mole-mole ratios from the coefficients of the equation. More advanced problems are two or three steps and involve mole-mass and/or mole-volume calculations in addition to the mole ratio. The limiting reactant in a chemical reaction is the reactant that would run out first during the course of a reaction and thus limit the amount of products that could be formed. The other reactant(s) are called excess reactant(s). The percent yield of a reaction is an indication of how successful a reaction has been and can be calculated from the actual yield and the theoretical yield.
