What do you need? You will need to use i. molar ratios, ii. molar masses, iii. balancing and interpreting equations, and iv. conversions between grams and moles. Note: This type of problem is often called "mass-mass."

Steps Involved in Solving Mass-Mass Stoichiometry Problems Balance the chemical equation correctly Using the molar mass of the given substance, convert the mass given to moles. Construct a molar proportion (two molar ratios set equal to each other) Using the molar mass of the unknown substance, convert the moles just calculated to mass.
