What is Stoichiometric Coefficient?

Stoichiometric coefficient:
The number of molecules of a reactant taking part in a reaction is known as Stoichiometric coefficient.

For example:
Consider the following equation:
aA + bB ⇌ cC + dD

In this equation, a, b, c and d are called as Stoichiometric coefficients of the A, B, C and D respectively.
