A comparison of the number of moles of one substance in a chemical equation. For example,

Na2CO3 + 2KCl -----> 2NaCl + K2CO3

The ratio of sodium carbonate to potassium chloride to sodium chloride to potassium carbonate is is 1:2:2:1.

A Mole Ratio is a conversion factor that relates the amounts in moles of any two substances involved in a chemical reaction.

What is the empirical formula of a compound that breaks down into 4.12g of N and 0.88g of H?

To find the answer, the molar ratio of the two elements must be found. The molar mass of hydrogen is 1.0079 and the molar mass of nitrogen is 14.007. From this, it is found that there are approximately .294 moles of nitrogen and .873 moles of hydrogen. By taking and reducing this ratio, it is seen that the compound must be NH3.
