Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Stoichiometry is pretty much all about converting. You have to set up the problems in a way the units cancel out, i.e. dimensional analysis.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2However, 90% of the difficulty of stoichiometry problems come from determining what the problem means. As you solve more and more problems, you'll learn to first categorize a problem, then conjure up the algorithm you need to solve it, and then actually the solve the problem and report the answer.
