    The following terms have been deemed "important" and additional time should be spent to fully understand and comprehend their use and definitions.  Use them at home, at school, and with your friends to illustrate your clearly articulated and intelligent thoughts!!

    Unit 1: Stoichiometry 
    Stoichiometry - converting between components in a balanced chemical reaction
    Molar Coefficient - "number on the line" used to balance a chemical reaction and demonstrate the Law of Conservation of Mass/Energy
    Molar Ratio - ratio of moles using the coefficients from a balanced chemical reactions.  Can compare any components in the balanced reaction
    Limiting Reactant - the reactant that "runs out first" -- determines the pace and yield of a reaction
    Excess Reactant - the "other reactant" -- the reactant that is not limiting is in excess... meaning you will have more of this reactant left over after the reaction had been completed.
    Actual Yield - the quantity of product "actually" obtained from a reaction after its completion.  Should always be AT LEAST less than the theoretical yield
    Theoretical Yield - the quantity of product "Stoichiometry tells us we COULD get" -- in a perfect world we could THEORETICALLY get ....
    Percent Yield - (Actual / Theoretical) * 100    -- percent yield describes the relative efficiency of a particular reaction's yield of products
    STP - standard temperature and pressure -- one mole of gas ~any gas~ at STP (0C, 1ATM) has a volume equal to 22.41 L
