Sorry, no etymologies found.
The first item on the list should be advanced studies and prototypes for stoichiometric mixture ratio rocket engines.
As a result you not only need a bigger fuel tank for hydrogen, because you have to burn 3 times as much to release the same amount of energy, you also need much bigger engines, since the amount of fuel you can burn is directly linked to the amount of air passing through the engine (stoichiometric ratio)
I'm confused because I thought amount of cathode or anode you put into a battery was dependent on the stoichiometric amount needed for the anode and cathode to be used up completely in a reaction, not on the capacity for the battery you are making.
First, and most importantly, the effect of CO2 is stoichiometric, not catalytic; that is, its warming contribution is a linear function of its partial pressure.
Most compounds are stoichiometric, i.e., consist of elements in integral ratios, which for Cu and S would be 1:1 or 2:1.
Cuprous sulfide, it happens, is non-stoichiometric, and corresponds to a Cu:S ratio of 1.88:1 IIRC.
Students, expecting stoichiometry, nudged their results toward a stoichiometric result, with most rounding up to 2:1, but some rounding down to 1:1.
Not to mention that you add a slight excess of the stoichiometric requirement to completely adsorb the sulfur in the coal.
Because LFTR operates at higher temperatures, the carnot efficiency of the turbine goes up by about 50% (as measured in power electrical per power stoichiometric).
A stoichiometric combustion of kerosene, generally regarded as dodecane, for example ...
