Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Balance youre equation first. Then use stoichiometry. You know how?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0H>H2O H+O2>2H2O 4H+O2>2H2O now use stoichiometry.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0H by itself has a 2 .... its a diatatomic element. Whenever its alone it is found in a pair of 2. so you do NOT end up with 4H

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[2H _{2}+O _{2}=2H _{2}O\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That is the balanced equation but i don't remember what to do next, it's been a while since I've worked on chemistry.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hum you have 36.7 grams of whater, than just do grams>mole of h2 > moles of o2 > grams of o2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1in this example, you don't even need to know stoichiometry, you really just need to know conservation of mass. If 36.7g of hydrogen are used, and they produce 328g of water, the only other component must be 291.3g of oxygen.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well tis good to practice your stoich. Im just saying its very helpful for the future when you hit higher level of chem, just conservation of mass doesn't work with every problem.
