# How can I do stoichiometry mole to mole problems?

##### 1 Answer

By learning how to balance chemical equations.

#### Explanation:

Let's take a look at the simplest example:

Given the equation above, how many moles of

From the balanced equation, already know that for every 1 mole of

1 mole

Therefore, in order to get the number of moles for

If 5 moles of

Again, from the balance equation, you will see that every 1 mole of

1 mole

Thus,

See? Everything starts by properly balancing the equation first because that is where you can get your "conversion factors" in order to solve the mole-to-mole problems.
