    WHAT YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO WHEN YOU HAVE FINISHED THIS TOPIC:

    1. Write and balance chemical equations involving pure elements and compounds.
    2. Find empirical and molecular formulas and molar masses of compounds from analytical data, and use molecular formulas to determine percent composition.
    3. Use combustion analysis to determine the empirical formula of an organic compound.
    4. Use stoichiometric relationships to determine limiting reactants, masses of reactants and products, and percent yield, given appropriate data.
