Beginning chemistry students can use this app to visualize the mathematical relationships occurring between substances in a chemical reaction.
Get a feel for limiting reactants and how they affect product formation. Analyze mass relationships and apply this logic when solving stoichiometry problems.
The user-friendly interface of the “Simulator” allows you to quickly set the desired reactant masses and run multiple trials in a short period of time. Choose from a variety of reactions.
Click over to “My Trials” to view past trials, make comparisons, or plan future trials.
The “Lab Manual” currently has three activities that will help you better understand the role of limiting reactants, mass relationships, and balanced equations.
Use the simulator to quickly generate your own practice problems to reinforce the concepts. Set up the masses, run the trial, record the results. Then, use one or more of the amounts to set up a variety of problems…the best part is you’ll already know the answer!
