Reaction Stoichiometry
the numerical relationships between chemical amounts
in a reaction is called stoichiometry
the coefficients in a balanced chemical equation
specify the relative amounts in moles of each of the

Limiting Reactant
for reactions with multiple reactants, it is likely that
one of the reactants will be completely used before the
others
when this reactant is used up, the reaction stops and no
more product is made
the reactant that limits the amount of product is called
the limiting reactant
sometimes called the limiting reagent
the limiting reactant gets completely consumed
reactants not completely consumed are called excess
reactants
the amount of product that can be made from the
limiting reactant is called the theoretical yield

Tro, Chemistry: A Molecular Approach 9
Things Dont Always Go as Planned!
many things can happen during the course of an
experiment that cause the loss of product
the amount of product that is made in a reaction
is called the actual yield
generally less than the theoretical yield, never more!
the efficiency of product recovery is generally
given as the percent yield

Solutions
when table salt is mixed with water, it seems to disappear,
or become a liquid the mixture is homogeneous
the salt is still there, as you can tell from the taste, or simply
boiling away the water
homogeneous mixtures are called solutions
the component of the solution that changes state is called
the solute
the component that keeps its state is called the solvent
if both components start in the same state, the major component
is the solvent
Tro, Chemistry: A Molecular Approach 27
Describing Solutions
since solutions are mixtures, the composition can
vary from one sample to another
pure substances have constant composition
salt water samples from different seas or lakes have
different amounts of salt
so to describe solutions accurately, we must
describe how much of each component is present
we saw that with pure substances, we can describe
them with a single name because all samples identical
Tro, Chemistry: A Molecular Approach 28
Solution Concentration
qualitatively, solutions are often
described as dilute or
concentrated
dilute solutions have a small
amount of solute compared to
solvent
concentrated solutions have a
large amount of solute
compared to solvent
quantitatively, the relative
amount of solute in the solution
is called the concentration

Dilution
often, solutions are stored as concentrated stock
solutions
to make solutions of lower concentrations from these
stock solutions, more solvent is added

Solution Stoichiometry
since molarity relates the moles of solute to the
liters of solution, it can be used to convert
between amount of reactants and/or products in

holding them together
there are also attractive forces between the solvent
molecules
when we mix the solute with the solvent, there are
attractive forces between the solute particles and the
solvent molecules
if the attractions between solute and solvent are strong
enough, the solute will dissolve
Tro, Chemistry: A Molecular Approach 39
Table Salt Dissolving in Water
Each ion is attracted
to the surrounding
water molecules and
pulled off and away
from the crystal
When it enters the
solution, the ion is
surrounded by water
molecules, insulating
it from other ions
The result is a solution
with free moving
charged particles able
to conduct electricity
Tro, Chemistry: A Molecular Approach 40
Electrolytes and Nonelectrolytes
materials that dissolve
in water to form a
solution that will
conduct electricity are
called electrolytes
materials that dissolve
in water to form a
solution that will not
conduct electricity are
called nonelectrolytes
Tro, Chemistry: A Molecular Approach 41
Molecular View of
Electrolytes and Nonelectrolytes
in order to conduct electricity, a material must have
charged particles that are able to flow
electrolyte solutions all contain ions dissolved in the
water
ionic compounds are electrolytes because they all dissociate
into their ions when they dissolve
nonelectrolyte solutions contain whole molecules
dissolved in the water
generally, molecular compounds do not ionize when they
dissolve in water
the notable exception being molecular acids
Tro, Chemistry: A Molecular Approach 42
Salt vs. Sugar Dissolved in Water
ionic compounds dissociate
into ions when they dissolve
molecular compounds do not
dissociate when they dissolve
Tro, Chemistry: A Molecular Approach 43
Acids
acids are molecular compounds that ionize when they
dissolve in water
the molecules are pulled apart by their attraction for the water
when acids ionize, they form H
+
cations and anions
the percentage of molecules that ionize varies from one
acid to another
acids that ionize virtually 100% are called strong acids

Strong and Weak Electrolytes
strong electrolytes are materials that dissolve
completely as ions
ionic compounds and strong acids
their solutions conduct electricity well
weak electrolytes are materials that dissolve mostly as
molecules, but partially as ions
weak acids
their solutions conduct electricity, but not well
when compounds containing a polyatomic ion dissolve,
the polyatomic ion stays together

Solubility of Ionic Compounds
some ionic compounds, like NaCl, dissolve very well in
water at room temperature
other ionic compounds, like AgCl, dissolve hardly at all
in water at room temperature
compounds that dissolve in a solvent are said to be
soluble, while those that do not are said to be insoluble
NaCl is soluble in water, AgCl is insoluble in water
the degree of solubility depends on the temperature
even insoluble compounds dissolve, just not enough to be
meaningful
Tro, Chemistry: A Molecular Approach 47
When Will a Salt Dissolve?
Predicting whether a compound will dissolve in
water is not easy
The best way to do it is to do some experiments
to test whether a compound will dissolve in
water, then develop some rules based on those
experimental results
we call this method the empirical method

Titration
often in the lab, a solutions concentration is
determined by reacting it with another material
and using stoichiometry this process is called
titration
in the titration, the unknown solution is added
to a known amount of another reactant until
the reaction is just completed, at this point,
called the endpoint, the reactants are in their
stoichiometric ratio
the unknown solution is added slowly from an
instrument called a burette
a long glass tube with precise volume markings that
allows small additions of solution
Tro, Chemistry: A Molecular Approach 69
Acid-Base Titrations
the difficulty is determining when there has been just
enough titrant added to complete the reaction
the titrant is the solution in the burette
in acid-base titrations, because both the reactant and
product solutions are colorless, a chemical is added that
changes color when the solution undergoes large
changes in acidity/alkalinity
the chemical is called an indicator
at the endpoint of an acid-base titration, the number of
moles of H
+
equals the number of moles of OH


aka the equivalence point
Tro, Chemistry: A Molecular Approach 70
Titration
Tro, Chemistry: A Molecular Approach 71
Titration
The base solution is the
titrant in the burette.
As the base is added to
the acid, the H
+
reacts with
the OH

to form water.
But there is still excess
acid present so the color
does not change.
At the titrations endpoint,
just enough base has been
added to neutralize all the
acid. At this point the
indicator changes color.

Oxidation and Reduction
in order to convert a free element into an ion, the
atoms must gain or lose electrons
of course, if one atom loses electrons, another must
accept them
reactions where electrons are transferred from one
atom to another are redox reactions
atoms that lose electrons are being oxidized, atoms
that gain electrons are being reduced

Electron Bookkeeping
for reactions that are not metal + nonmetal, or do
not involve O
2
, we need a method for determining
how the electrons are transferred
chemists assign a number to each element in a
reaction called an oxidation state that allows them
to determine the electron flow in the reaction
even though they look like them, oxidation states are
not ion charges!
oxidation states are imaginary charges assigned based on a
set of rules
ion charges are real, measurable charges
Tro, Chemistry: A Molecular Approach 91
Rules for Assigning Oxidation States
rules are in order of priority
1. free elements have an oxidation state = 0
Na = 0 and Cl
2
= 0 in 2 Na(s) + Cl
2
(g)
2. monatomic ions have an oxidation state equal
to their charge
Na = +1 and Cl = -1 in NaCl
3. (a) the sum of the oxidation states of all the
atoms in a compound is 0
Na = +1 and Cl = -1 in NaCl, (+1) + (-1) = 0
Tro, Chemistry: A Molecular Approach 92
Rules for Assigning Oxidation States
3. (b) the sum of the oxidation states of all the atoms in
a polyatomic ion equals the charge on the ion
N = +5 and O = -2 in NO

, (+5) + 3(-2) = -1
4. (a) Group I metals have an oxidation state of +1 in all
their compounds
Na = +1 in NaCl

4. (b) Group II metals have an oxidation state of +2 in
all their compounds
Mg = +2 in MgCl

OxidationReduction
oxidation and reduction must occur simultaneously
if an atom loses electrons another atom must take them
the reactant that reduces an element in another reactant
is called the reducing agent
the reducing agent contains the element that is oxidized
the reactant that oxidizes an element in another reactant
is called the oxidizing agent
the oxidizing agent contains the element that is reduced
