2009/1/26 1 Chapter 4.1 Chemical Quantities (Stoichiometry) Reaction Stoichiometry The numerical relationships between chemical amounts in a reaction is called stoichiometry . Why do we study stoichiometry? --- Suppose you are a manager at Eli Lilly. The company plans to produce 1,000 lb of a certain drug next month. One of the raw materials needed is ethanol. How much ethanol do you need to order? 2 Chemical Equations Symbolic representation of a chemical reaction that shows: 1. reactants on the left and products on the right; 2. States of matter for each; 3. relative amounts of each using stoichiometric coefficients. 3 Chemical Equations Points to remember: A coefficient operates on all the atoms in the formula that follows it; Chemical formulas cannot be altered when balancing equations; No other reactants or products can be added when balancing equations; Use the smallest whole number to balance equations. 4
