Discussion: Stoichiometry Inquiry Game

In this discussion board inquiry activity, you will be able to play a “game” designed to help you reinforce your understanding of stoichiometry and limiting reactants.

Your goals for this activity are as follows:

  1. Predict the amounts of products and leftovers after reaction using the concept of limiting reactant
  2. Predict the initial amounts of reactants given the amount of products and leftovers using the concept of limiting reactant
  3. Translate from symbolic (chemical formula) to molecular (pictorial) representations of matter
  4. Explain how subscripts and coefficients are used to solve limiting reactant problems.
