Chemical Reactions and Stoichiometry

Broad Concept: The conservation of atoms in chemical reactions leads to the ability to calculate the mass of products and reactants.

5.1 Balance chemical equations by applying the law of conservation of mass.*
5.2 Recognize synthesis, decomposition, single displacement, double displacement, and neutralization reactions.
5.3 Understand the mole concept in terms of number of particles, mass, and gaseous volume.
5.4 Determine molar mass, percent compositions, empirical formulas, and molecular formulas.
5.5 Calculate mass-mass, mass-volume, volume-volume, and limiting reactant problems for chemical reactions.
5.6 Calculate percent yield in a chemical reaction.
