Balloon Stoichiometry

Unit 4: Unit 5: Stoichiometry, Chemical Reactions, and First Semester Review
Lesson 3 of 7

Objective: Students will be able to calculate the percent yield of carbon dioxide in the chemical reaction between sodium bicarbonate and acetic acid using a calculated theoretical yield and actual yield from performing an experiment.

Big Idea: Stoichiometry allows chemists to determine the theoretical yield of a product. additionally after performing an experiment chemists can then calculate percent yield using the experimental value from the lab and the theoretical value from calculations.

Big Idea: Atoms are not destroyed or created in chemical reactions; they are rearranged. This means that a reaction must have the same amount of atoms of each element on both sides of a chemical equation.
