Quiz your students’ on their knowledge of quantitative chemistry methods

The topics covered in this Starter for ten are: the mole; moles and mass; mass and concentration; concentration and dilution; moles summary; the ideal gas equation; molar gas volume; empirical and molecular formula; percentage yield and atom economy; and titration calculations.

## Example questions

Work out the answers to the following simple calculations (1 t = 1 tonne = 1,000 kg);

- No. of moles in 10.0 g of O
_{2}+_{2}O = - Mass in g of 0.2 moles of K
_{2}CO_{3}+ mass in g of 0.5 moles of MgCO_{3 }= - No. of moles in 12.4 t of NaNO
_{3 }÷ no. of moles in 12.4 t of NaCl = - No. of moles in 25.9 g of sodium
**–**no. of moles in 25.9 g of sodium chloride = **?****×**molar mass of in g mol^{-1}of calcium carbonate = no. of moles in 4.2 kg of SiCl_{4}

Calculate the answers to the calculations below and place them (to the correct no. of sig. fig.) in the appropriate square. The arrows indicate the direction the numbers must follow. For the 10^{th} mark complete the remainder of the Sudoku grid.

**WARNING** Take care with your significant figures and RAMs in order to avoid the wrong digit in the wrong square! (Relative atomic masses, H 1.0; O 16.0; Na 23.0; S 32.1; Cl 35.5; Fe 55.8; Cu 63.5)
