I desperately need all the stoichiometry stuff that goes with the chemical equation H2O2 + C6H12O6 = C2H5OH + CO2... Apparently there are four steps to figuring out the stoichiometry - those steps being 1. Balance the equation.
2. Convert units of a given substance to moles.
3. Using the mole ratio, calculate the moles of substance yielded by the reaction.
4. Convert moles of wanted substance to desired units.
So far I have balanced the equation and converted the units to moles.
Equation = H2O2 + C6H12O6 = C2H5OH + CO2
Balanced = C6H12O6 + -0 H2O2 = 2 C2H5OH + 2 CO2
In order to convert units of a given substance to moles, divide the number of grams or millilitres by the number of moles. So:
Yeast = 5.3g ÷ 274 = 0.019 moles
Hydrogen Peroxide = 59mL ÷ 34 = 1.73 moles
I am stuck and at my mental capacity so can anyone prove this right (if it is right (please let me be right so far)) and find the answers for step 3 and 4 for me??
