Not everything that counts can
be counted, and not everything
that can be counted counts.
Albert Einstein
What is a mole?
The mole is a counting unit.
Like . . .
1 dozen = 12 each
1 yard = 3 feet
1 cup = 8 ounce
So then ...
mol = 6.022 x 1023 particles
That’s Avogadro’s Number!
Where did it come from?
Mole (n) is the SI unit for the number of
 Amedo Avogadro determined the
number of particles in a mole
 The mole is the measure of the amount
of a substance whose number of
particles is the same as 12 grams of
Carbon - 12
Using dimensional analysis you can
determine the number of particles in a
1 mole = 6.022 x 1023 particles, molecules, etc.
 6.022 x 1023 particles = 1 mole
So, let’s count . . .
1 mol of Ag =
1 mol of CO2 =
6.022 x 1023 atoms Ag
6.022 x 1023 molecules of CO2
1 mol of pizza =
6.022 x 1023 pizzas!

Moles to Mass
1 Moles = Molar Mass (g) =
Molar mass/Mole or (g/mol)
Now let’s apply that knowledge!
The Mole:
Molar Mass Calculations
Reminder – Finding Molar Mass:
The molar mass = the sum of all the atomic masses.
Example: Ca(NO3)2
Ca = 40.08
N = 2(14.01)
O = 6(16.00)
164.10 grams
You try one:
What is the gram formula
mass (molar mass) of
Mg = 3(24.305)
P = 2(30.97376)
O = 8(15.9994)
262.86 grams
Molar or Formula Mass
Chemical compounds are written as an
empirical formula.
Ex. H2SO4 is Sulfuric Acid
Calculating atomic mass, add each atom.
= 1.008 x 2 = 2.016
 S = 32.07 x 1 = 32.07
 O = 15.999 x 4 = 63.996
Total Atomic Mass =
2.016+32.07+63.996 = 98.08 amu

Mole Calculations
One mole = 6.02 x 1023 representative particles
One mole = 22.4 Liters of gas at 0°C and one atmosphere of
One mole = the atomic mass listed on the periodic table.
For example: one mole of Helium contains 6.02 x 1023 atoms
of Helium and it has a mass of 4.00260 grams. At 0°C and
one atmosphere of pressure, it would occupy 22.4 Liters.
Sample problem:
How many liters would 2.0 moles of Neon occupy?
2.0 moles Ne x 22.4 Liters Ne = 44.8 Liters Ne
1.0 moles Ne
Calculating Moles

More One-Step
Ex 1) Convert 4.3 grams of NaCl to moles.
Mass  mol
4.3 g NaCl x 1 mol NaCl = 7.4 x 10-2 mol NaCl
58.45 g NaCl
Ex 2) Convert 0.00563 mol NH3 to grams.
Mol -> mass
0.00563 mol NH3 x 17 g NH3 =9.57 x 10 –2 g NH3
1 mol NH3

and the Mole
Stoichiometry means that if you know
one piece of information about ONE
compound in an equation, you can
determine EVERYTHING else!
 If you have 3L of Nitrogen, how many
liters of ammonia will you produce?
N2 + 3H2  2NH3
Let’s look at that last reaction again.
N2(g) + 3H2(g)  2NH3(g)
If you start out with 1 mole of Nitrogen gas
and 3 moles of Hydrogen gas, you will make
2 moles of Ammonia gas.
 It is important in industry to know the exact
proportions of your ingredients so that you
will not have excess waste in your product.

produced from the reaction of 17.0 g silver nitrate
with excess sodium chloride solution?

Limiting Reactant
Limiting Reactant Problems:
Given the following reaction:
2Cu + S  Cu2S
• What is the limiting reactant when
82.0 g of Cu reacts with 25.0 g S?
• What is the maximum amount of Cu2S
that can be formed?
• How much of the other reactant is
Limiting Reactant Problems:
 Our
1st goal is to calculate how much S
would react if all of the Cu was
 From that we can determine the
limiting reactant (LR).
 Then we can use the Limiting Reactant
to calculate the amount of product
formed and the amount of excess
reactant left over.
82g Cu mol Cu mol S g S
2Cu + S  Cu2S
 So
1mol S
32.1g S
1mol S
=20.7 g S
if all of our 82.0g of Copper were
reacted completely it would require only
20.7 grams of Sulfur.
 Since we initially had 25g of S, we are going
to run out of the Cu, the limiting reactant)
& end up with 4.3 grams of S
Limiting Reactant Problems:
Copper being our Limiting Reactant is
then used to determine how much
product is produced.
 The amount of Copper we initially start
with limits the amount of product we can
2molCu2S ________
82.0gCu 63.5gCu 1molCu S 1molCu2S
= 103 g Cu2S
Limiting Reactant Problems:
 So
the reaction between 82.0g of Cu
and 25.0g of S can only produce 103g
of Cu2S.
 The
Cu runs out before the S and
we will end up wasting 4.7 g of the

Percent Yield
Calculating Percent Yield
 In
theory, when a teacher gives an
exam to the class, every student
should get a grade of 100%. Sadly, this
is not always true. The calculation for
percent yield is similar.
 We already know that we do not get a
100% yield of products in an reaction.
Calculating Percent Yield
Consider the Following Reactions:
Mg + 2HCl  MgCl2 + H2
5.0 g Mg is reacted with an excess of HCL.
How much MgCl2 will be produced.
5.0g Mg 1molMg 1mol MgCl2 105.2 g MgCl2
24.3 g Mg 1mol Mg
= 21.6 g of MgCl2
1mol MgCl2
Calculating Percent Yield
You might assume that using stoichiometry
to calculate that our reaction will produce
21.6 g of MgCl2, but we will actually only
recover 15.2 g of MgCl2 in the lab.
 21.6 g of MgCl2 is the value representing
the theoretical yield(theoretical yield is the
maximum amount of product that could be
 The 15.2 g of MgCl2 is called the actual
yield (the actual yield is less than the
theoretical yield).
Calculating Percent Yield
 The
percent yield is the ratio of the
actual yield to the theoretical yield as
a percent
 It
measures the measures the
efficiency of the reaction.

Percent yield=

x 100
Calculating Percent Yield
Why do reactions not go to completion.
 Impure reactants and competing side
rxns may cause unwanted products to
 Actual yield can also be lower than the
theoretical yield due to a loss of product
during filtration or transferring between
 If a wet precipitate is recovered it might
weigh heavy due to incomplete drying,
Calculating Percent Yield
Calcium carbonate is synthesized by
heating, as shown in the following
equation: CaO + CO2  CaCO3
• What is the theoretical yield of CaCO3 if
24.8 g of CaO is heated with 43.0 g of CO2?
• What is the percent yield if 33.1 g of CaCO3
is produced?
• Determine which reactant is the limiting
and then decide what the theoretical yield
24.8gCaOmolCaO mol CO2 gCO2
24.8 g 1molCaO 1mol CO2
CaO 56g CaO 1mol CaO
44 g CO2
= 19.5gCO2
24.8gCaOmolCaO mol CaCO3gCaCO3
24.8 g 1mol CaO 1molCaCO3 100g CaCO3
CaO 56g CaO 1mol CaO 1molCaCO3
= 44.3 g CaCO3
Calculating Percent Yield
 CaO
is our LR, so the reaction should
theoretically produce 44.3 g of CaCO3
(How efficient were we?)
 Our percent yield is:
33.1 g CaCO3
Percent yield=
x 100
44.3 g CaCO3
Percent yield = 74.7%
