    • 9.01: Stoichiometry
      Quantities of substances can be related to each other using balanced chemical equations.
    • 9.02: The Mole in Chemical Reactions
      Balanced chemical reactions are balanced in terms of moles. A balanced chemical reaction gives equivalences in moles that allow stoichiometry calculations to be performed.
    • 9.03: Mole-Mass Calculations
      Mole quantities of one substance can be related to mass quantities using a balanced chemical equation. Mass quantities of one substance can be related to mass quantities using a balanced chemical equation. In all cases, quantities of a substance must be converted to moles before the balanced chemical equation can be used to convert to moles of another substance.
    • 9.04: Mass to Mass Calculations
    • 9.05: Limiting Reagents
      The limiting reagent is that reactant that produces the least amount of product. Mass-mass calculations can determine how much product is produced and how much of the other reactants remain.
    • 9.06: Percent Yields
      Theoretical yield is what you calculate the yield will be using the balanced chemical reaction. Actual yield is what you actually get in a chemical reaction. Percent yield is a comparison of the actual yield with the theoretical yield.
