# Mass relationship and chemical equations

### Mass Relationships and Chemical Equations - Chemistry LibreTexts

A mass relation refers to the ratio of the mass of reactants and products to each other. In a balanced chemical equation, you can use the mole. Overview: In this tutorial, the fundamentals of balancing chemical reactions are It is the quantitative relation between the number of moles (and therefore mass). Mass Relationship in Chemical Reactions. Experimental Determination of Empirical Formulas. Balancing Chemical Equations. Stoichiometry is.

## 6.4: Mass Relationships and Chemical Equations

Titanium tetrachloride is then converted to metallic titanium by reaction with magnesium metal at high temperature: Under these circumstances, magnesium metal is the limiting reactant in the production of metallic titanium. Medical use of titanium. Here is an example of its successful use in joint replacement implants.

Suppose you have 1.

How much titanium metal can you produce according to? Solving this type of problem requires that you carry out the following steps: Determine the number of moles of each reactant. Compare the mole ratio of the reactants with the ratio in the balanced chemical equation to determine which reactant is limiting.

Calculate the number of moles of product that can be obtained from the limiting reactant. Convert the number of moles of product to mass of product.

Is it necessary for the number of moles of the reactants to be equal to the number of moles of products?

Answer Not only does the stoichiometry tell us the mole relation between product and reactants but it will also tell us the mass relation. How many grams of CO2 are produced by the complete combustion of 1. Remember that a combustion reaction is one in which the reactant glucose in this case reacts with O2 to produce CO2 and H2O.

So first let's write the skeleton equation unbalanced equation.

## Chapter 3 Mass Relationships in Chemical Reactions

Use the guidelines to balance the equation. We will assign a 1 to glucose. We will balance the oxygen last because it is contained in a single-element species O2.

This means we need to balance the C and H atoms next. So we need 6 atoms of C and 12 atoms of H on the right side of the reaction.

So now we have 6 atoms of C and 6 atoms of H2 which accounts for twelve H atoms. Now we can balance the oxygen.

We have a total of 18 oxygen atoms on the right side. In order to have 18 atoms of oxygen on the left side we will need to assign a 6 to O2. Balanced or What does this really say? We need one mole of glucose to react with 6 moles of O2 to produce 6 moles of CO2 and 6 moles of H2O.

But the question asks about the mass of CO2 produced not the number of moles. We can use the molecular mass to convert. The conversion factor of 6 moles of CO2 per mole of glucose comes from the balanced chemical equation or the correct stoichiometry. Chemical Arithmetic Chapter 3: The relative proportions in which elements form compounds or in which substances react.

You can relate any of the substances in the chemical equation to each other. Chemical Arithmetic Aqueous solutions of sodium hypochlorite NaOClbest known as household bleach, are prepared by reaction of sodium hydroxide with chlorine gas: Chemical Arithmetic The commercial production of iron from iron ore involves the reaction of Fe2O3 with CO to yield iron metal plus carbon dioxide: Remind students about significant figures.

The amount actually formed in a reaction.

The amount predicted by calculations from the limiting reactant. The reactant that is present in limiting amount. The extent to which a chemical reaction takes place depends on the limiting reactant.

Any of the other reactants still present after determination of the limiting reactant. Which one is the limiting reactant? How many grams of excess reactant remain? How many grams of LiOH are produced?
