How do you do stoichiometry problems. Can you give me an easy way to set up the steps and solve them?

    Stoichiometry is pretty much all about converting. You have to set up the problems in a way the units cancel out, i.e. dimensional analysis.

    You start with a value you know and use conversion factors to get to a value you want.

    Here is a simple problem: A sample contains 27.1 g of calcium oxide. How many moles of calcium oxide are in the sample?

    However, 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.
