When you are completing mole ratios, you always need to start with a balanced chemical equation. Once you have a balanced chemical equation, you can use the ratio to predict how much product will form from reactants, or how much reactant is needed to produce a specific amount of product. Watch the following video to see how this is done using mole ratios.
Watch the following video from 0:00 to 6:00 to learn more about mole ratios and how to use mole ratios in stoichiometry. If you need additional review, please watch the video further.
The atomic mass of an element is the weight in grams of 1 mole of atoms. This is also called the molar mass. For example,
The molar mass is used to convert between grams and moles. Watch the following video to learn about how to do these types of conversions.
