1 Stoichiometry Stoichiometry is the study and calculation of quantitative (i.e. measurable) relationships between the reactants and products in chemical reactions (chemical equations). The word is derived from the Greek word stoikheion ("element") and metri ā ("measure," from metron). Stoichiometry is concerned with numerical relationships of chemical formulas and chemical equations Stoichiometric Calculations 1. Write and balance your chemical equation; 2. Calculate molar masses of any materials for which have been given amounts OR will have determine amounts for; 3. Convert any masses given to moles; 4. Use balanced equation to determine stoichiometric ratios needed; 5. Calculate moles of desired materials; 6. Calculate grams of desired materials.
