# How many grams of {eq}KCl {/eq} can be produced from heating 29.6 grams of {eq}KClO_3 {/eq}? {eq}2KClO_3 \to 2KCl + 3O_2 {/eq}

## Question:

How many grams of {eq}KCl {/eq} can be produced from heating 29.6 grams of {eq}KClO_3 {/eq}?

{eq}2KClO_3 \to 2KCl + 3O_2 {/eq}

## Stoichiometry:

The stoichiometric calculation is used to calculate the amount of a chemical species in a reaction using the coefficients of the balanced equation. The amount calculated in this manner is called the theoretical yield since what is calculated here does not take into consideration the non-ideality of the conditions applied in the real-life setup.
