Reaction Stoichiometry: How Much Carbon
Dioxide?

## • The balanced chemical equations for fossil-

fuel combustion reactions provide the exact
relationships between the amount of fossil
fuel burned and the amount of carbon
dioxide emitted.

## – 16 CO2 molecules are produced for every

2 molecules of octane burned.

## © 2014 Pearson Education, Inc.

Quantities in Chemical Reactions

## • The amount of every substance used and

made in a chemical reaction is related to
the amounts of all the other substances in
the reaction.
– Law of conservation of mass
– Balancing equations by balancing atoms
• The study of the numerical relationship
between chemical quantities in a chemical
reaction is called stoichiometry.

## © 2014 Pearson Education, Inc.

Reaction Stoichiometry
• The coefficients in a chemical reaction
specify the relative amounts in moles of
each of the substances involved in the
reaction.

Making Molecules: Mass-to-Mass Conversions
Example 4.1 Stoichiometry
In photosynthesis, plants convert carbon dioxide and water into glucose
(C6H12O6) according to the reaction:

Suppose you determine that a particular plant consumes 37.8g of CO2 in one
week. Assuming that there is more than enough water present to react with all of
the CO2, what mass of glucose (in grams) can the plant synthesize from the
CO2?

Question of NaCl dissolving water

Question:

## Table salt (NaCl) dissolving in water.

This is a chemical process or a physical process?

## © 2014 Pearson Education, Inc.

Solution Concentration and Solution
Stoichiometry

## • When table salt is mixed with water, it seems to

disappear or become a liquid, the mixture is
homogeneous.
– The salt is still there, as you can tell from the taste or simply
boiling away the water.
• Homogeneous mixtures are called solutions.

## © 2014 Pearson Education, Inc.

Solution Concentration and Solution
Stoichiometry

## Solute: the component changed its state.

Solution
Solvent: the component did not change its state.

## When both components did not change state,

Solute: the component with less mass percent.
Solution
Solvent: the component with higher mass content.

Question:

## You dissolved 10 g sugar in 100 g water, while your sister

dissolved 120 g sugar in 2200 g water.

## Which solution is sweeter (i.e., which solution has a higher

sugar mass percent?)

## © 2014 Pearson Education, Inc.

Solution Concentration: Molarity

## • A common way to express solution

concentration is molarity (M).
– Molarity is the amount of solute (in moles)
divided by the volume of solution (in liters).

Question
A student prepared a solution by dissolving 26.88 g KCl in water. The
solution mass was 502.0 g and the solution density is 1.05 g/ml. What is KCl
molarity of this solution?

## © 2014 Pearson Education, Inc.

Solution Dilution
• Often, solutions are stored as concentrated
stock solutions.
• To make solutions of lower concentrations
from these stock solutions, more solvent
is added.
– Before and after dilution, the amount of solute
doesn’t change, just the volume of solution:
moles solute in solution 1 = moles solute in solution 2
• The concentrations and volumes of the stock
and new solutions are inversely proportional:
M1∙V1 = M2∙V2

Types of Aqueous Solutions and Solubility

## • Consider two familiar aqueous solutions:

salt water and sugar water.
– Salt water is a homogeneous mixture of NaCl
and H2O.
– Sugar water is a homogeneous mixture of
C12H22O11 and H2O.
• As you stir either of these two substances
into the water, it seems to disappear.
– How do solids such as salt and sugar dissolve
in water?

Electrolyte and Nonelectrolyte Solutions

## • Materials that dissolve

in water to form a
solution that conducts
electricity are called
electrolytes.

## • A solution of salt (an electrolyte) • Materials that dissolve

conducts electrical current.
in water to form a
solution that does not
• A solution of sugar (a
nonelectrolyte) does not. conduct electricity are
called nonelectrolytes.

## © 2014 Pearson Education, Inc.

Electrolyte and Nonelectrolyte Solutions

## • Ionic substances such as

sodium chloride that completely
dissociate into ions when they
dissolve in water are strong
electrolytes.

## • In contrast to sodium chloride,

sugar is a molecular compound.

## • Most molecular compounds

(except for acids), dissolve in
water as intact molecules.

## © 2014 Pearson Education, Inc.

Binary Acids
• Acids are molecular compounds that ionize when
they dissolve in water.
– The molecules are pulled apart by their attraction for
the water.
– When acids ionize, they form H+ cations and also anions.
• The percentage of molecules that ionize varies from
one acid to another.
• Acids that ionize virtually 100% are called
strong acids. Complete process
HCl(aq)  H+(aq) + Cl−(aq)
• Acids that only ionize a small percentage are called
weak acids. Incomplete process
HF(aq)  H+(aq) + F−(aq)
© 2014 Pearson Education, Inc.
Strong and Weak Electrolytes
• Strong electrolytes are materials that dissolve
completely as ions.
– Ionic compounds and strong acids
– Solutions conduct electricity well
• Weak electrolytes are materials that dissolve
mostly as molecules, but partially as ions.
– Weak acids
– Solutions conduct electricity, but not well
• When compounds containing a polyatomic ion
dissolve, the polyatomic ion stays together.

Classes of Dissolved Materials

## © 2014 Pearson Education, Inc.

Dissociation and Ionization
• When ionic compounds dissolve in water, the
anions and cations are separated from each
other. This is called dissociation.
Na2S(aq)  2 Na+(aq) + S2–(aq)
• When compounds containing polyatomic ions
dissociate, the polyatomic group stays together
as one ion.
Na2SO4(aq)  2 Na+(aq) + SO42−(aq)
• When strong acids dissolve in water, the
molecule ionizes into H+ and anions.
(ionization)
H2SO4(aq)  2 H+(aq) + SO42−(aq)

The Solubility of Ionic Compounds

?
Ionic compound  dissolving in water  dissociation into ions

## No all ionic compounds can dissolve in water.

However, all dissolving portion can 100% dissociate into ions.

## • In general, a compound is termed soluble if

it dissolves in water.
• And insoluble if it does not.

## © 2014 Pearson Education, Inc.

Solubility of Salts

## • If we mix solid AgNO3 with

water, it dissolves and
forms a strong electrolyte
solution.
• Silver chloride (AgCl), on
the other hand, is almost
completely insoluble.
– If we mix solid AgCl with
water, virtually all of it
remains as a solid within
the liquid water.

Precipitation Reactions

## • Precipitation reactions are reactions in

which a solid forms when we mix two
solutions.
– Reactions between aqueous solutions of ionic
compounds produce an ionic compound that
is insoluble in water.
– The insoluble product is called a precipitate.

Representing Aqueous Reactions
Molecular equation:
2 KOH(aq) + Mg(NO3)2(aq)  2 KNO3(aq) + Mg(OH)2(s)

## If soluble, use ions to represent: Complete ionic

2 K+ + 2OH-(aq) + Mg2+(aq) + 2NO3-(aq) equation
 2 K+(aq) + NO3-(aq) + Mg(OH)2(s)

## Cancel all ions appear at both sides:

2K+ + 2OH-(aq) + Mg2+(aq) + 2NO3-(aq)
 2K+(aq) + 2NO3-(aq) + Mg(OH)2(s)
Those ions cancelled are called spectator ions. They actually did not
participate the reaction.

Left over:
2OH-(aq) + Mg2+(aq)  Mg(OH)2(s) Net ionic equation
© 2014 Pearson Education, Inc.
Ionic Equation
• Rules of writing the complete ionic equation:
– Aqueous strong electrolytes are written as ions.
• Soluble salts, strong acids, strong bases
– Insoluble substances, weak electrolytes, and
nonelectrolytes are written in molecule form.
• Solids, liquids, and gases are not dissolved,

## Example 4.12 Writing Complete Ionic and Net Ionic Equations

Write complete ionic and net ionic equations for each reaction.

Examples

## • Write the ionic and net ionic equation for each

of the following:
1. K2SO4(aq) + 2 AgNO3(aq)  2 KNO3(aq) + Ag2SO4(s)
2 K+(aq) + SO42−(aq) + 2 Ag+(aq) + 2 NO3−(aq)
 2 K+(aq) + 2 NO3−(aq) + Ag2SO4(s)
2 Ag+(aq) + SO42−(aq)  Ag2SO4(s)

## 2. Na2CO3(aq) + 2 HCl(aq)  2 NaCl(aq) + CO2(g) + H2O(l)

2 Na+(aq) + CO32−(aq) + 2 H+(aq) + 2 Cl−(aq)
 2 Na+(aq) + 2 Cl−(aq) + CO2(g) + H2O(l)
CO32−(aq) + 2 H+(aq)  CO2(g) + H2O(l)
© 2014 Pearson Education, Inc.
Acid–Base and Gas-Evolution Reactions

## • Two other important classes of reactions

that occur in aqueous solution are
1. acid–base reactions, and
2. gas-evolution reactions.

• Acid–base Reaction:
– An acid–base reaction is also called a
neutralization reaction.

## © 2014 Pearson Education, Inc.

Acid–Base Reactions
Arrhenius Definitions:
• Acid: Substance that produces H+
HCl(aq) H+(aq) + Cl–(aq)
– Some acids—called polyprotic acids
• One molecule acid can ionize out more than one
proton sequentially.
• For example, sulfuric acid, H2SO4 is a diprotic acid.
• It is strong in its first ionizable proton, but weak in its
second.
• Base: Substance that produces OH ions in
aqueous solution
NaOH(aq) Na+(aq) + OH–(aq)
© 2014 Pearson Education, Inc.
Acid–Base Reactions
• Also called neutralization reactions
because the acid and base neutralize each
other’s properties
2 HNO3(aq) + Ca(OH)2(aq)  Ca(NO3)2(aq) + 2 H2O(l)

## © 2014 Pearson Education, Inc.

Acid–Base Reactions
• Also called neutralization reactions
because the acid and base neutralize
each other’s properties
2 HNO3(aq) + Ca(OH)2(aq)  Ca(NO3)2(aq) + 2 H2O(l)
• The net ionic equation for an acid–base
reaction is
H+(aq) + OH(aq)  H2O(l)
– as long as the salt that
forms is soluble in water.

## © 2014 Pearson Education, Inc.

Acids and Bases in Solution
• Acids ionize in water to form H+ ions.
HCl(aq) + H2O(l) H3O+(aq) + Cl-(aq)
– hydronium ion, H3O+.
– Most chemists use H+ and H3O+ interchangeably.

## • Bases dissociate in water to form OH ions.

– Bases, such as NH3, that do not contain OH ions,
produce OH by pulling H off water molecules.

## © 2014 Pearson Education, Inc.

Some Common Acids and Bases

## Must know which is strong, which is weak.

Predict the Product of the Reactions

1. HCl(aq) + Ba(OH)2(aq) 
(H+ + Cl−) + (Ba2+ + OH−) → (H+ + OH−) + (Ba2+ + Cl−)

## HCl(aq) + Ba(OH)2(aq) → H2O(l) + BaCl2

2 HCl(aq) + Ba(OH)2(aq)  2 H2O(l) + BaCl2(aq)

2. H2SO4(aq) + LiOH(aq) 
(H+ + SO42−) + (Li+ + OH−) → (H+ + OH−) + (Li+ + SO42−)
H2SO4(aq) + LiOH(aq) → H2O(l) + Li2SO4
H2SO4(aq) + 2 LiOH(aq)  2 H2O(l) + Li2SO4(aq)

Acid–Base Titrations

• In a titration, a
substance in a solution
of known concentration
is reacted with another
substance in a solution
of unknown
concentration.
• At the endpoint, the
reactants are in their
stoichiometric ratio.

## © 2014 Pearson Education, Inc.

Acid–Base Titrations
• In acid–base titrations, a chemical is
added that changes color at endpoint.
– The chemical is called an
indicator.
• At the endpoint of an acid–base
titration, the number of moles of H+
equals the number of moles of OH.
– This is also known as the
equivalence point.

## © 2014 Pearson Education, Inc.

Acid–Base Titrations
Example 4.14 Acid–Base Titration

## The titration of a 10.00 mL sample of an HCl solution of unknown

concentration requires 12.54 mL of a 0.100 M NaOH solution to reach the
equivalence point. What is the concentration of the unknown HCl solution
in M?

Acid–Base and Gas-Evolution Reactions

• Gas-evolution reactions
– In a gas-evolution reaction, a gas forms,
resulting in bubbling.

## © 2014 Pearson Education, Inc.

Gas-Evolving Reactions

## • Some reactions form a gas directly from the

ion exchange.
K2S(aq) + H2SO4(aq)  K2SO4(aq) + H2S(g)

## • Other reactions form a gas by the

decomposition of one of the ion exchange
products into a gas and water.
NaHCO3(aq) + HCl(aq)  NaCl(aq) + H2CO3(aq)
H2CO3(aq)  H2O(l) + CO2(g)

Oxidation–Reduction Reactions

## • The reactions in which electrons are

transferred from one reactant to the other
are called oxidation-reduction reactions.
– These are also called redox reactions.
– Many redox reactions involve the reaction of a
substance with oxygen.
– 4 Fe(s) + 3 O2(g)  2 Fe2O3(s) (rusting)
– 2 C8H18(l) + 25 O2(g) 16 CO2(g) + 18 H2O(g)
(combustion)
– 2 H2(g) + O2(g)  2 H2O(g)

## © 2014 Pearson Education, Inc.

Combustion as Redox
2 H2(g) + O2(g)  2 H2O(g)

## © 2014 Pearson Education, Inc.

Redox without Combustion
2 Na(s) + Cl2(g)  2 NaCl(s)

## © 2014 Pearson Education, Inc.

Redox Reactions of Metals with Nonmetals

## • Consider the following reactions:

4 Na(s) + O2(g) → 2 Na2O(s)
2 Na(s) + Cl2(g) → 2 NaCl(s)
• The reactions involve a metal reacting with
a nonmetal.
• In addition, both reactions involve the
conversion of free elements into ions.
4 Na(s) + O2(g) → 2 Na+2O2– (s)
2 Na(s) + Cl2(g) → 2 Na+Cl–(s)

## © 2014 Pearson Education, Inc.

Redox Reaction between nonmetals
• The transfer of electrons does not need to be a
complete transfer (as occurs in the formation of
an ionic compound) for the reaction to qualify as
oxidation–reduction.
– For example, consider the reaction between
hydrogen gas and chlorine gas:
H2(g) + Cl2(g) 2 HCl(g)
• When hydrogen bonds to chlorine, the electrons
are unevenly shared.

+ 2

## © 2014 Pearson Education, Inc.

Oxidation and Reduction
• Atoms that lose electrons are being oxidized,
while atoms that gain electrons are being
reduced.
2 Na(s) + Cl2(g) → 2 Na+Cl–(s)
Na → Na+ + 1 e– (oxidation)
Cl2 + 2 e– → 2 Cl– (reduction)

## Agent losing electron, oxidation reaction, reducing agent

Remember

Oxidation States

## • We need a quantitative method for determining

how the electrons are transferred.
• Chemists assign a number to each element in a
reaction called an oxidation state that allows
them to determine the electron flow in the
reaction.
– Even though they look like them, oxidation states
are not ion charges!
• Oxidation states are imaginary charges assigned
based on a set of rules.
• Ion charges are real, measurable charges.

## © 2014 Pearson Education, Inc.

Rules for Assigning Oxidation States

## The following rules are in order of priority:

1. Free elements have an oxidation state = 0.
– Na = 0 and Cl2 = 0 in 2 Na(s) + Cl2(g)
2. Monatomic ions have an oxidation state
equal to their charge.
– Na = +1 and Cl = −1 in NaCl
3. (a) The sum of the oxidation states of all
the atoms in a compound is 0.
– Na = +1 and Cl = −1 in NaCl, (+1) + (−1) = 0

## © 2014 Pearson Education, Inc.

Rules for Assigning Oxidation States

## 3. (b) The sum of the oxidation states of all the

atoms in a polyatomic ion equals the charge on
the ion.
– N = +5 and O = −2 in NO3–, (+5) + 3(−2) = −1
4. (a) Group I metals have an oxidation state of
+1 in all their compounds.
– Na = +1 in NaCl
4. (b) Group II metals have an oxidation state of
+2 in all their compounds.
– Mg = +2 in MgCl2

## © 2014 Pearson Education, Inc.

Rules for Assigning Oxidation States
5. In their compounds, nonmetals have
oxidation states according to the
table below.
– Nonmetals higher on the table take priority.
