1 The BCA Method in Stoichiometry Larry Dukerich Modeling Instruction Program Arizona State University

2 Typical Approach to Stoichiometry Very algorithmic –grams A -->moles A-->moles B-->grams B –Fosters plug-n-chug solution Disconnected from balanced equation Especially poor for limiting reactant problems

3 BCA Approach Stresses mole relationships based on coefficients in balanced chemical equation Sets up equilibrium calculations later (ICE tables) Clearly shows limiting reactants

4 Balanced Chemical Equations 1.Atoms are conserved in chemical reactions: balanced chemical equations. a.Reactants --> Products b.Ratio of particles: mole ratios through coefficients Ex. 2 Mg + 1 O 2 --> 2MgO two moles of magnesium burn with one mole of oxygen gas to produce two moles of MgO 2 moles Mg: 1 mole O 2 : 2 moles MgO

5 Making Predictions 1.Using mole ratios we can identify: a.How much is needed (before) b.How much can be made (after) 2.To make predictions we need also to consider the changes that occur during the reaction. 3.BCA: Before-Change-After chart to keep track of what happens to particle/mole ratios during a chemical reaction

6 Emphasis on balanced equation Step 1- Balance the equation Hydrogen sulfide gas, which smells like rotten eggs, burns in air to produce sulfur dioxide and water. How many moles of oxygen gas would be needed to completely burn 2.4 moles of hydrogen sulfide? 2 H 2 S + 3 O > 2 SO H 2 O Before: Change After

7 Focus on mole relationships Step 2: fill in the before line 2 H 2 S + 3 O > 2 SO H 2 O Before: 2.4 xs 0 0 Change After Assume more than enough O 2 to react

8 Focus on mole relationships Step 3: use ratio of coefficients to determine change 2 H 2 S + 3 O > 2 SO H 2 O Before: 2.4 xs 0 0 Change –2.4 – After Reactants are consumed (-), products accumulate (+)

9 Emphasize that change and final state are not equivalent Step 4: Complete the table 2 H 2 S + 3 O > 2 SO H 2 O Before: 2.4 xs 0 0 Change –2.4 – After 0 xs

10 Complete calculations on the side In this case, desired answer is in moles If mass is required, convert moles to grams in the usual way

24 Only moles go in the BCA table If given mass of reactants for products, convert to moles first, then use the table.

25 Limiting reactant problems BCA approach distinguishes between what you start with and what reacts. When 0.50 mole of aluminum reacts with 0.72 mole of iodine The balanced equation deals with how many, not how much. to form aluminum iodide, how many moles of the excess reactant will remain? How many moles of aluminum iodide will be formed? 2 Al + 3 I > 2 AlI 3 Before: Change After

26 Limiting reactant problems Guess which reactant is used up first, then check 2 Al + 3 I > 2 AlI 3 Before: Change After Its clear to students that theres not enough I 2 to react with all the Al.

27 Limiting reactant problems Now that you have determined the limiting reactant, complete the table, then solve for the desired answer. 2 Al + 3 I > 2 AlI 3 Before: Change After

28 BCA a versatile tool It doesnt matter what are the units of the initial quantities –Mass - use molar mass –Gas volume - use molar volume –Solution volume - use molarity Convert to moles, then use the BCA table Solve for how many, then for how much
