Molar Mass or Molar Weight
Notice that when we are dealing with a particular isotope of an element, we use the mass of that isotope;
otherwise we use the atomic weight (the average atomic mass) of the element.
The mass in grams of one mole of a substance is called the molar mass.

3.6 Quantitative Information from Balanced Equations
3H2 + N2 2NH3
Coefficients in a chemical equation represent the relative numbers of molecules (and therefore moles)
involved in a reaction….which can be converted to mass.

chemical equation is below.
C6H12O6 + 6O2 6CO2 + 6H2O

How many moles of NH3 can be formed from 3.0mol N2 and 6.0mol of H2? (note, example of using an
The balanced chemical equation:
3H2 + N2 2NH3
Consider the reaction:
2Al + 3Cl2 2AlCl3
A mixture of 54.0g of Al and 142.0g of Cl2 are allowed to react in an enclosed vessel.
a) which is the limiting reactant?
b) how many moles of AlCl3 are formed?
c) how many moles of excess reactant remain at the end of the reaction?
A second limiter example:

solid silver are the products.
a) write the balanced chemical reaction.
b) determine the limiting reactant
c) determine the moles of each product produced
d) determine the mass of excess reactant remaining.
The quantity of product that is calculated to form when all of the limiting reactant reacts is called the
theoretical yield. The amount of product actually obtained in a reaction is called the actual yield.
Percent yield =

Here is the list of "for sure" do problems:
mixed (visualizing concepts):
balance equations/types rxns:
formula mass and % comp:
22(only some),24 (usually takes longer to do),
mole (I like some of the ones that make them find the moles of
particular elements in a molecule: e.g., 38d), but many of these
problems have several parts...so they take awhile:
44,46(only one or two of them),48,50,
general stoich probs:
68,71,72,74 (probably not "d"),76
Here is a list of maybe do's and extras:
11,13,15,22(more if needed),46 (the rest of the problem if needed),
Here is a list of quiz problems (partner, in-class, take-home or just
"put them on the ch3 quiz" problems):
87,93 (if need more stoich),99 (if need more limiter), 107 (I usually
give this one as a partner quiz...death by cyanide problem (kids like
the name, but then they find it hard), but good review of dim analysis
with stoich and some percentage stuff)
