## Question:

How many grams of glucose are produced when 3 moles of water react with carbon dioxide according to the following reaction:

{eq}\;6\; CO_2+ 6\; H_2O--> C_6H_{12}O_6+ 6\; O_2. {/eq}

## Mole Ratio:

When an equation is balanced, the coefficients of the equation show molar relationships between any two reactants, any reactant to product or any two products. This relationship is only about how many of each will react when the reaction goes to completion. It is just like if one was to build a bicycle, then each bicycle needs two wheels, one handle bar, two peddles, etc. Meaning there is a relationship within a bicycle of for every one handle bar we must also have two wheels to build a complete bike. We could also say if one has two wheels then we must also have two pedals to build a complete bike. Or with one handle bar we must have two peddles. These are the basic relationships between these parts of building a bike. But what if we had 3 handle bars with 6 wheels and 7 peddles? How many bikes could we make?... 3 complete bikes with one peddle left over. Or what if we had 5 peddles, how many handle bars & wheels should we purchase to build complete bikes? 2 handle bars and 4 wheels with a peddle left over.
