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

Yeah, yeah

Stoichiometry

So let’s begin, don’t waste the time

You must balance the equation

Yeah, yeah

Convert units to moles

You must find the mole ratio

of product and reactant involved

then the mass of the compound

Stoichiometry

It so easy when you know the steps

You must enjoy

Yeah yeah

Stoichiometry

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.
