Showed this TikTok to my science teacher and she laughed
Stoichiometry is really confusing for some reason?
UGH I HATE STOICHIOMETRY 😡
idk what stoichiometry is but it sounds fun
If anyone is an ace at stochiometry please hit me up. I need chemistry help. 😩
WHEN FINDING A POINT USING BEER’S LAW USING THE LINE OF BEST FIT, ISN’T IT JUST y=mx+b ??
IS THE r USED IN THERE, MY LAB BUDDY SAYS SO I’M SO CONFUSED
my chem professor changed the due date for our stoichiometry lab from last Thursday to this Monday, so I put it off and now I’m about to cry because I have no idea how to balance this fucking equation
Any, like, high schoolers wanna send me their stoichiometry homework
I’m not gonna give you the answers I just wanna practice :P
This kind of super-basic annoying busy work is the part where I’m most likely to get tripped up because it always gets explained in a way that makes it way more complicated than it needs to be! I spent half of the first semester in my high school chem class getting woefully behind because the method the teacher showed us for converting between units just made absolutely zero sense to me, and I thought I must be a huge idiot until one day in frustration I just took the textbook myself and was like “wait…it took three weeks and a bunch of scary-looking diagrams just to tell us to multiply this number by this number, a concept I’ve intuitively understood since second grade?” And then in college I got tripped up because no one explained that [x] was “quantity” and I was like “what the FUCK I don’t remember matrix math!” In 8th grade I was bored and independently tried to come up with ways to measure the rate of change of mathematical equations, but when I took calculus, the definition of “derivative” was never really explained in a way that was clear to me, so I spent several weeks floundering because I didn’t know what I was supposed to be doing before I realized it was something I had already figured out years before.
Physics, math, and chemistry are subjects that I do fine in if I teach myself, but I just CANNOT figure out what the hell people are talking about whenever someone else tries to explain it to me. So now I’m trying to reteach myself these subjects before I have to take them in class form because I know I’ll struggle if I don’t.
Balancing chemical formulas and getting to Oxygen
The word stoichiometry has been derived from two Greek words: stoicheion- element and metron- measure.
Thus, stoichiometry deals with the calculation of mass/volume of reactants and products in a chemical reaction.
Solving these problems:
The easiest approach to solve such problems involves the following steps:
Today in class we had to figure out how many moles were in a tablespoon of sugar and I am going to be really obnoxious about it now
Person: how much sugar do you need
Me: YES I NEED 0.07 MOLES AND NOT A HUNDREDTH MORE PLEASE
Here’s the thing
There are four easy steps
It was cool, but t’was hard on the start
So let’s begin, don’t waste the time
You must balance the equation
Convert units to moles
You must find the mole ratio
of product and reactant involved
then the mass of the compound
It so easy when you know the steps
You must enjoy
Now I get the answers that I want
And now I survived
Anyone good with stoichiometry I need some serious help, I’m failing and the years almost over. I don’t understand anything he's teaching.
