Chapter 5: Chemical Accounting ● Chemical equation  ○ Symbols and formulas to represent the elements and  compounds involved in the charge. Example C+O →2O 2 (+) indicates that carbon and oxygen are added together ( → ) is read “yield(s)” or “react(s) to produce” ● Reactants  ○ Substances on the left of the arrow  ○ Starting Materials ● Products ○ Those on the right of the arrow ● Sometimes, we indicate the physical states of the reactants and products  by writing the initial letter of the state ○ (g): gaseous substances ○ (l): liquid ○ (s): solid ○ (aq): water C(s)+O (2)→C O (g) 2 ● Balancing Chemical Equation H 2O →2 O 2 H 2O →2 H O 2 2 H2+O 22H O 2 H­2       H­2 H­2      2x2 = H­4 2x2 = H­4 2x2 = H­4 O­2       O­1 O­2      2x1 = O­2     O­2 2x1 = O­2 (Not Balanced)     (Not Balanced) (Balanced) 1. If an element occurs in just one substance on each side of the equation,  try balancing that element first 2. Balance any reactants or products that exist as the free elements last. 3. When you add a coefficient to the compound to correct one element, be  aware that it will also change the number of atoms in other related elements ● Law of combining volumes ○ When all measurements are made at the same temperature  and pressure, the volumes of gaseous reactants and products are in small whole­number ratios. ● Avogadro’s hypothesis ○ Based on a shrewd interpretation of experimental facts, was  that equal volumes of all gases, when measured at the same temperature  and pressure, contain the same number of molecules. ● Avogadro’s number ○ The number of carbon­12 atoms in a 12­g sample of carbon­ 12 ○ Has been determined experimentally to be 23 23 6.022367×10 /6.02×10 ● Mole(mol) ○ An amount of any substance or item that contains the same  number of elementary units as there are atoms in exactly 12g of carbon­ 12 ● Formula mass ○ The sum of masses of the atoms represented in the formula Example CO 2 = 1 carbon atom  × atomic mass of C + 2 oxygen atom  × atomic  mass O          = ×  12.0u + 2  × 16.0u = 44.0u ● Percent composition bymassC=massC÷ MassCO ×100 2 ● Stoichiometry ○ The quantitative relationship between reactants and  products in a chemical reaction ● Stoichiometric factor ○ Relates the amounts, in moles, of any two substances  involved in a chemical equations ● Mass Relationships in chemical equations ○ Write a balanced chemical equation for the reaction ○ Determine the molar masses of the substances involved in  the calculation ○ Use coefficients (stoichiometric relationship) from the  balanced chemical equation to convert moles of the given substance to  moles of the desired substance. ○ Use the molar mass to convert moles of the desired  substance to grams of the desired substance. ● Solution ○ Homogeneous mixture of two or more substances  ● Aqueous solutions ○ Those in which water is the solvent, and we take a more  quantitative look at the relationship between solute and solvent. ● Dilute solution ○ One that contains a relatively small amount of solute in lots  of solvent ● Concentrated solution ○ Relatively large amount of solute dissolved in a small  amount of solvent ● Molarity ○ The amount of solute, in moles, per liter of solution ● Percent by volume ○ Often used because liquid volumes are easily measured ● Percent by mass ○ Many commercial solutions are labeled with the  concentration
