Calculations based on reactions
All data used in calculations is taken from the SQA Chemistry Data Booklet - Standard Grade and Intermediate 2.
The balanced equation for a chemical reaction can be used to calculate:
The Gram Formula Mass (GFM) is calculated by adding together the relative atomic masses of all the atoms or ions in the formula of the substance.
The calculation of moles and mass can be done using the equations,
This video explains how to work out a balanced equation for a chemical reaction.
