In the practice of chemistry one of the most important calculations concerns the masses of products expected when particular masses of reactants are used in an experiment. For example, chemists judge the practicality and efficiency of a reaction by seeing how close the amount of product actually obtained is to the expected amount. Using a balanced chemical equation and an amount of starting material of your choice, summarize and illustrate the various steps needed in such a calculation for the expected amount of product.
