### Net Moles Produced

What does it mean when it asks for net number of moles produced?

It just basically asks for how much the equation produced. If it's using the number of moles of equation, then it's how many gets produced in the equation (ie 1H2O -> 2 moles of H and 1 mole of O, giving 3 moles produced). If it's using an amount of moles, then you have to figure out the ratios first before answering the question

A trick to problems like these is to add the coefficients of the reactants and subtract that value from the sum of the coefficients of products. Make sure to balance the chemical equation first

All you do is count up the moles of the products and subtract by the moles of the reactants and that is your net moles.

Add the coefficients of the reactants together and then subtract the sum of the coefficients of the products from that. For example, if the reaction were 2K + 10W --> 5L + 4R, then the net moles produced would be 12 - 9 = 3 net moles.

just subtract the coefficients of products by the coefficients of reactants
