This is a Before Class Exploration on stoichiometry. To answer the questions on this BCE it is OK to use your textbook, but if you can answers the questions without it that is OK too.

Answer all of the questions below. If you do not know an answer enter CNA. However, it will help the most if you answer each question with your best intuition/idea about what would be a reasonable answer.

1a. Enter the formula for the element, hydrogen.

b) Enter the formula for the element oxygen.

c) Enter the formula for the compound water.

d) Write the balanced chemical equation (using whole number coefficients) that describes the reaction of hydrogen plus oxygen to form water.

2a. The Figure I. below depicts the particulate level (submicroscopic) representation of a container (the box on the left) with a mixture of hydrogen and oxygen molecules before a reaction occurs, and the same container (the box on the right) after a reaction occurs.

Write the balanced chemical equation (using whole number coefficients) that describes the reaction of hydrogen plus oxygen to form water.
