• Chemistry Calculations
• Formulae
• Balancing a formulae: count the amount of each element on both sides and change the numbers in front, until there are the same amounts.
• Word equations: which chemicals react together (reactants) and which chemicals are produced (products.)
• The formulae of a compound shows how many of each type of atom join together to make the compound.
• Empirical formulae: the formulae in it's simplest form.
• To convert to a molecular formulae, you do the Mr divided by the total mass in the empirical formulae.
• Symbol equation: shows the masses that will react or have been reacted.
• State symbols:      (s) solid           (l) liquid          (g) gas         (aq) aqueous
• Limiting reactants
• The chemical that will run out first
• The reactant in excess is still there at the end of the equation
• Balance the equation and the one will the lowest number of moles is the limiting reactant.
• Reacting masses
• 1. Balance the equation. 2. Write the given mass. 3. Write the Mr.
• Unknown mass = mass / Mr of known compound x Mr of unknown compound
• If you are given the mass of the reactant and product you can use ratios to answer the question.
• Mass is never lost or gained, it is conserved
• However some reactants may react in an unexpected way, some products may be lost and not all reversible reactions may be completed.
• Concentration
• The strength of a solution or how much solute is dissolved in the solvent.
• 1 L = 1 dm3 1ml = 1 cm3  1dm3 = 1000 cm3 or ml
• Molar concentration = moles of solute / dm3 of solvent
• % concentration = mass of solute / 100ml of solvent
• g/l concentration = mass of solute / dm3 of solvent
• Mole calculations
• m = n / Mr      n = m x Mr      Mr = n / m
• 1. Balance the equation. 2. Mr calculations. 3. Find out the m or n.   4. Use the co-eff to work out the n or m of the product.
• Atom economy & percentage yield
• % yield = (actual mass / theoretical mass) x 100
• % is how much mass is lost.
• Atom economy = (Mr of desired product / sum of Mr of all reactants) x 100
• % of the product you want
• Percentage yields can be affected by: not scraping all of the product from equipment, having impureatives in the reaction and having side reactions.
