Pictorial Analogies XII: Stoichiometric Calculations.
Fortman, John J.
Journal of Chemical Education, v71 n7 p571-72 Jul 1994
Pictorial analogies that demonstrate concepts of amounts allow instructors to teach that in stoichiometric problems, the number--or moles--of molecules of a chemical is what matters, even though it must be measured in masses or volumes. Analogies to stoichiometric relationships include the ratio of four wheels to one body in making wagons and packaged cupcakes that must be purchased in pairs. (PVD)
