## Stoichiometry:

In a reaction which has gaseous species, they are often expressed in volume which can be converted into number of moles using the ideal gas equation. The number of moles of the gas can be used to convert stoichiometrically to the desired species. In this case, the measured species is oxygen. From here, the mass of potassium chlorate from the mixture can be obtained.
