1. Stoichiometry

Stoichiometry is a branch of chemistry that deals with the relative quantities of reactants and products in chemical reactions. In a balanced chemical reaction, the relations among quantities of reactants and products typically form a ratio of positive integers. For example, in a reaction that forms ammonia, exactly one molecule of nitrogen reacts with three molecules of hydrogen to produce two molecules of NH3: This particular kind of stoichiometry - describing the quantitative relationships among substances as they participate in chemical reactions - is known as reaction stoichiometry. In the example above, reaction stoichiometry describes the 1:3:2 ratio of molecules of nitrogen, hydrogen, and ammonia. Stoichiometry can be used to determine quantities such as the amount of products that can be produced with given reactants and percent yield. Stoichiometry calculations can predict how elements and components diluted in a standard solution react in experimental conditions. Stoichiometry is founded on the law of conservation of mass: the mass of the reactants equals the mass of the products.
