    Calcium chloride and sodium phosphate react to form solid calcium phosphate in the following reaction:
    3CaCl2 + 2Na3PO4 = Ca3(PO4)2 + 6NaCl. What mass of sodium phosphate is required to react completely with 9.75 grams of calcium chloride?

    I love stoichiometry problems.... but it took me a long time to get the hang of them. What worked for me was to remember that the reagents or reactants (CaCl2 + Na3PO4 in your reaction) relate to each other and the products of their reaction (Ca3(PO4)2 + NaCl) via mole ratios. Thanks for providing a balanced reaction equation. This tells us that for every 3 ...
