When calculating atom economy do you always times the Mr by the coefficient? Confused as when i do other calcs involving Mr you do not use the coefficient unless you are calculating the mole ratio.

Yes.

For a reaction aA + bB + (…) —> cC + dD + (…), the atom economy with respect to C is:

(c x (Mr of C) x 100) / (a x (Mr of A) + b x (Mr of B) + (…))

Where the denominator includes only species on the reactants side OR alternatively the products side

Thanks!

What other cases would you need to times the Mr by the coefficient in A level chem? Or is there a simple chemical explanation for needing to do this?

This and any calculations requiring mole ratios are the only examples that come to mind.
