Calculating Moles and Mass in Chemical Reactions Using Mole Ratios (stoichoimetric ratios) Chemistry Tutorial
- A balanced chemical equation can tell us:
⚛ The ratio of the number of molecules of each type reacting and produced.
⚛ The ratio of the moles of each reactant and product.
- The ratio of moles of each reactant and product in a reaction is known as the mole ratio (or stoichiometric ratio)
- The mole ratio (stoichiometric ratio) can be used to calculate the mass of reactants and products in a chemical reaction.
