Reactions and Reactivity: Chemical Calculations and Yields

Lesson Objective

In this lesson we will review how to balance chemical reactions and use mole ratios and molar masses to determine theoretical yields.

Previously we covered...

  • The mole concept is used in chemistry as a way to count atoms and molecules by weighing them.
  • The number of moles of a substance can be determined from the amount and the molar mass.
  • If the number of moles of a substance is known, the number of grams present can be determined
