If a business uses excess amounts of chemical X and Chemical Y to create chemical X2Y, it would be costly and wasteful. Using exactly 2 moles of X and one mole of Y will make the process much more efficient. And how does one figure all this out? Stoichiometry!

An example of stoichiometry is any chemical reaction. HCl+NaOH->NaCl+H2O may be an example of stoichiometry.

Stoichiometry is not a method of measurement, it is a concept for the ratios of reactants and products.
