Chapter 12 Stoichiometry By David B. Oestreicher What is Stoichiometry? Stoichiometry is the study of quantitative relationships between the amounts of reactants used and products formed by a chemical reaction; based on the law of conservation of mass. Desired Learning Objectives 1. You can write mole ratios from balanced chemical equations 2. You can calculate the number of moles and the mass of a reactant or product when given the number of moles or the mass of another reactant or product 3. You can identify the limiting reactant in a chemical reaction 4. You can determine the percent yield of a chemical reaction Cooking Examples • How many eggs will we need to make 3 Western Omelets? • How many peppers will we need to make 4 Western Omelets? • If we made 40 Western Omelets, how many pieces of cheese did we use? 2 eggs + 1 slice of cheese + 1 pepper1 W.

First, what do we know? What do we need to find? a. We have 10.0 moles of propane b. We want to find out how much carbon dioxide will be produced. 2. Write a balanced equation for the problem: C3H8 (g) + 5O2-- 3CO2 + 4H2O(g) Ratios of reactants to each other and the products C3H8 (g) + 5O2-- 3CO2 + 4H2O(g) The ratio of CO2 to C3H8 is 3:1 or 3 moles CO2 1 mole C3H8 = 3 1 So 10.0 moles C3H8 x 3 moles CO2 = 30.0 moles of CO2 1 mole C3H8 Determine the mass of sodium chloride or table salt (NaCl) produced when 1.25 moles of chlorine gas (Cl2) reacts vigorously with sodium. 1. What do we have? What do we want to find out? a. We have 1.25 moles of Cl2 b. We want to find out the mass of NaCl produced 2. Write a balanced equation for the reaction 2Na(s) + Cl2(g)---- 2NaCl(s) 2. What is the ratio of NaCl to Cl2? 2 moles NaCl or 2:1 1 mole Cl2 Solve using ratios 1.25 moles Cl2 x 2 moles NaCl = 2.5 moles NaCl 1 mole Cl2 Is that the answer? NO! We were asked for the mass of NaCl so we need to convert from moles to grams 2.5 moles NaCl x 58.44 g NaCl = 146 g NaCl 1 mole NaCl Limiting Reactants The reaction between solid white phosphorus and oxygen produces solid tetraphosphorous decoxide (P4O10). This compound is often called diphosphorous pentoxide because its empirical formula is P2O5. a. Determine the mass of tetraphosphorous decoxide formed if 25.0 g of phosphorous (P4) and 50.0 g of oxygen are combined. b. How much of the excess reactant remains after the reaction stops? How do we solve this? 1. What do we know? mass of phosphorous = 25.0 g P4 mass of oxygen = 50.0 g O2 2. Write a balanced equation for the reaction P4(s) + 5O2(g) --- P4O10(s) Determine the number of moles of reactants P4(s) + 5O2(g) --- P4O10(s) 25.0 g P4 x 1 mol P4 = 0.202 mol P4 123.9 g P4 50.0 g O2 x 1 mol O2 = 1.56 mol O2 32.00 g O2 P4(s) + 5O2(g) --- P4O10(s) Calculate the actual ratio of available moles of O2 and available moles of P4. 1.56 moles O2 = 7.72 moles O2 0.202 moles P4 1 mol P4 Determine the mole ratio of the two reactants from the balanced equation P4(s) + 5O2(g) --- P4O10(s) 5 mol O2 1 mol P4 Because 7.72 mole of O2 are available, but only 5 moles are needed to react with 1 mole of P4, the O2 is in excess and P4 is the limiting reactant. Use the limiting reactant’s moles to determine how much product will be produced. 0.202 mol P4 x 1 mol P4O10 = 0.202 mol P4O10 1 mol P4 To find the mass 0.202 mol P4O10 x 283.9 g P4O10 = 57.3 g P4O10 1 mol P4O10 b. How much of the excess reactant remains after the reaction goes to completion? 0.202 mol P4 x 5 mol O2 = 1.01 mol O2 (needed) 1 mol P4 1.01 mol O2 x 32.00 g O2 = 32.3 g O2 needed 1 mol O2 50.0 g O2 given – 32.3 g O2 needed = 17.7 g O2 in excess Percent Yield Percent yield = actual yield (from an experiment)______________ x 100 theoretical yield (from stoichiometric calculations) Calculating Percent Yield When potassium chromate (K2CrO4) is added to a solution containing 0.500 g of silver nitrate (AgNO3), solid silver chromate (Ag2CrO4) is formed. a.
