# How do I figure out the ratio of moles in a chemical equation? watch

1. For example, as in this past paper:

TiCl4 + 2H20 -----> Ti02 + 4HCI

I'm aware this is probably really simple, but it's one this i'm struggling to understand.
So wouldn't the ratio of moles between TiCl4 and Ti02 be 1:1? And if it is, why don't you take into account the other compounds, like 4HCI?
2. If you imagine a big loaf of bread and cut it up into slices then you're going to get 2 crusts per full loaf, it's irrelevant how thick the slices of bread are in the middle in the same way it's irrelevant how many other moles you produce, you will only get 2 crusts per loaf.
Weird metaphor since i'm having a sandwich.

I suppose that makes sense! Reading that last part made me laugh
