Ch 13: Stoichiometry and Chemical Equations: Tutoring Solution

About This Chapter

The Stoichiometry and Chemical Equations chapter of this Chemistry Tutoring Solution is a flexible and affordable path to learning about stoichiometry and chemical equations. These simple and fun video lessons are each about five minutes long and they teach all of the fundamentals of stoichiometry and chemical equations required in a typical chemistry course.

How it works:

  • Begin your assignment or other chemistry work.
  • Identify the stoichiometry and chemical equations concepts that you're stuck on.
  • Find fun videos on the topics you need to understand.
  • Press play, watch and learn!
  • Complete the quizzes to test your understanding.
  • As needed, submit a question to one of our instructors for personalized support.

Who's it for?

This chapter of our chemistry tutoring solution will benefit any student who is trying to learn about stoichiometry and chemical equations and earn better grades. This resource can help students including those who:

  • Struggle with understanding mass-to-mass stoichiometric calculations, mole-to-mole ratios, limiting reactants or any other topic related to stoichiometry and chemical equations
  • Have limited time for studying
  • Want a cost effective way to supplement their science learning
  • Prefer learning science visually
  • Find themselves failing or close to failing their stoichiometry and chemical equations unit
  • Cope with ADD or ADHD
  • Want to get ahead in chemistry
  • Don't have access to their science teacher outside of class

Why it works:

  • Engaging Tutors: We make learning about stoichiometry and chemical equations simple and fun.
  • Cost Efficient: For less than 20% of the cost of a private tutor, you'll have unlimited access 24/7.
  • Consistent High Quality: Unlike a live chemistry tutor, these video lessons are thoroughly reviewed.
  • Convenient: Imagine a tutor as portable as your laptop, tablet or smartphone. Learn about stoichiometry and chemical equations on the go!
  • Learn at Your Pace: You can pause and rewatch lessons as often as you'd like, until you master the material.

Chemical Reactions and Balancing Chemical Equations

1. Chemical Reactions and Balancing Chemical Equations

In this lesson, you'll learn how to balance a chemical reaction equation using the conservation of matter law. You'll also learn how to write both word and formula equations, what the subscripts after a letter mean and what the numbers in front of compounds mean.

Mole-to-Mole Ratios and Calculations of a Chemical Equation

2. Mole-to-Mole Ratios and Calculations of a Chemical Equation

Learn what a mole ratio is and how to determine and write the mole ratio relating two substances in a chemical equation in this video lesson. Also, learn to make mole-to-mole calculations and solve problems involving moles of substances.

Mass-to-Mass Stoichiometric Calculations

3. Mass-to-Mass Stoichiometric Calculations

Learn how to set up and make mole to mass, mass to mole and mass to mass stoichiometric calculations. Learn how the ratios of moles helps you compare and make calculations. Learn how to relate mole ratios to molar mass.

Stoichiometry: Calculating Relative Quantities in a Gas or Solution

4. Stoichiometry: Calculating Relative Quantities in a Gas or Solution

In this lesson, learn about molar volume and how to set up and make stoichiometric calculations with gases. Then learn about solution stoichiometry and how to make stoichiometric calculations with solutions.

Limiting Reactants & Calculating Excess Reactants

5. Limiting Reactants & Calculating Excess Reactants

In this lesson, you'll learn what limiting reactant and excess reactant mean and how to determine which reactant is limiting in a chemical reaction when given the amount of each reactant. You'll also discover how to calculate the amount of product produced.

Calculating Reaction Yield and Percentage Yield from a Limiting Reactant

6. Calculating Reaction Yield and Percentage Yield from a Limiting Reactant

Learn what the theoretical yield, actual yield and percent yield are. Given the limiting reactant, learn how to calculate the theoretical reaction yield, which is also known as the ideal reaction yield and percentage yield.

Calculating Percent Composition and Determining Empirical Formulas

7. Calculating Percent Composition and Determining Empirical Formulas

Learn the difference between the empirical formula and chemical formula. Learn how to calculate the percent composition of an element in a compound. Learn how, if given a percent composition, to determine the empirical formula for a compound.

Hydrates: Determining the Chemical Formula From Empirical Data

8. Hydrates: Determining the Chemical Formula From Empirical Data

Learn the definition of a hydrate and an anhydrate in this lesson. Discover how, when given experimental data, you can determine the formula of a hydrate by following simple steps that include finding the moles of hydrate and anhydrate and comparing the two to write the formula.
