Chemical Quantities and Aqueous Reactions

Stochiometry The numerical relationship between chemical amounts in a balanced chemical equation
Relationship between Molecules to the amounts in Moles The coefficients in a chemical equation specify the relative amounts in moles of each of the substances involved in the reaction
Limiting Reactant(Limiting Reagent) The reactant that limits the amount of product in a chemical reaction. Is completely consumed. Makes the least amount of product. Determines theoretical yield.
Excess Reactants The reactants that do not limit the amount of product. Any reactant that occurs in a quantity greater than is required to completely react with the limiting reactant
Theoretical Yield The maximum amount of product that can be made in a chemical reaction based on the amount of limiting reactant.
Actual Yield The amount of product actually produced by a chemical reaction. Is always equal to or less than the theoretical yield
Percent Yield The percentage of the theoretical yield that was actually attained. Is calculated as the ratio of the actual yield to the theoretical yield
Percent Yield Formula %Yield = (actual yield/theoretical yield) * 100
Solution Homogenous mixture of two substances. Contain a solvent and solute with solvent in greater abundance
Solvent The majority component of a mixture
Solute The minority component of a mixture
Aqueous Solution A solution in which water acts as the solvent
Dilute Solution A solution that contains a small amount of solute relative to the solvent
Concentrated Solution A solution that contains a large amount of solute relative to the solvent
Molarity(M) The amount of solute(in moles) divided by the volume of solution(in liters)

Strong Acid An acid that completely ionizes in a solution
Weak Acids Acids that do not completely ionize in water. Are classified as weak electrolytes, and the resulting solutions - are weak electrolyte solutions - weakly conduct electricity

Gas-Evolution Reaction When 2 (aq)solutions mix to form (g)product that bubble out of solution. Some gas-evo Rxns form a (g)product directly when cation of one reactant combines with anion of the other. Other gas-evo Rxns form intermediate product that decomposes to form gas.
Gas-Evolution Example HCL(aq) + NaHCO3(aq) ---> (intermediate product)H2Co3(aq) + NaCl(aq) ---> H2O(l) + CO2(g) + NaCl(aq)
The Following are Compounds That Undergo Gas-Evolution Reactions

Oxidation-Reduction Reactions(Redox Reactions) Reactions in which electrons transfer from one reactant to the other. Any reaction in which there is a change in the oxidation states of atoms in going from reactants to products
Oxidation Loss of electrons or increase on Ox. state
Reduction Gain of electrons or decrease in Ox. state
Oxidation State(Oxidation Number) Is given to each atom based on the electron assignments. The "charge" an atom in a compound would have if all shared electrons were assigned to the atom with the greatest attraction for those electrons.
The following are Rules for Assigning Oxidation States These rules are hierarchical. If any two rules conflict, follow the rule that is higher on the list
1. The oxidation state of an atom in a free element is 0. Cu has 0 ox state... Cl2 has 0 ox state
2. The oxidation state of a monoatomic ion is equal to its charge. Ca^+2 has +2 ox state... Cl^-1 has -1 ox state
3. The sum of the oxidation states of all the atoms in:.. a. a neutral molecule of formula unit 0... b. An ion is equal to the charge of the ion H2O has ox state of (2(H ox state) + 1(O ox state) = 0)... NO3^-1 has ox state of (1(N ox state) + 3(O ox state) = -1)...
4. In their compounds, metals have positive oxidation states.. a. Group 1A metals always have an oxidation state of +1... b. Group 2A metals always have an oxidation state of +2 In NaCl, Na has +1 ox state... In CaF2, Ca has +2 ox state
5. In their compounds, nonmetals are assigned oxidation states according to the following table. Entries at the top of the table take precedence over entries at the bottom of the table. 1. Nonmetal(Fluorine(F))..Ox. State(-1)..Example(In MgF2, F has -1 ox state)... 2. Nonmetal(Hydrogen(H))..Ox State(+1)..Example(In H2O, H has +1 ox state)... 3. Nonmetal(Oxygen(O))..Ox State(-2)..Example(In CO2, O has -2 ox state)
Table Continuation 4. Nonmetal(Group 7A)..Ox State(-1)..Example(In CCl4, CL has -1 ox state)... 5. Nonmetal(Group 6A)..Ox State(-2)..Example(In H2S, S has -2 ox state)... 6. Nonmetal(Group 5A)..Ox State(-3)..Example(In NH3, N has -3 ox state)
When assigning oxidation states, keep these point in mind 1. The oxidation state of any given element general depends on what other elements are present in the compound. (The exceptions are the group 1A and 2A metals, which are always +1 and +2, respectively.)
(2)When assigning oxidation states, keep these point in mind 2. Rule 3 must always be followed. Therefore, when following the hierarchy shown in rule 5, give priority to the element(s) highest on the list and then assign the oxidation state of the element lowest on the list using rule 3.
(3)When assigning oxidation states, keep these point in mind 3. When assigning oxidation states to elements that are not covered by rules 4 and 5(such as carbon), use rule 3 to deduce their oxidation state once all other oxidation states have been assigned.
Oxidizing Agent A substance that causes the oxidation of another substance. Is always reduced
Reducing Agent A substance that causes the reduction of another substance. Is always oxidized
Chemical Reactions that ARE Redox Reactions 1. Combination.. 2. Decomposition.. 3. Single replacement.. 4. Combustion
Chemical Reactions that are NOT Redox Reactions 1. Double replacement... a. Precipitation.. b. Acid-Base(Neutralization)
