LiOH and NaOH can each react with CO2
to form the metal carbonate and H2O.
These reactions can be used to remove CO2
from the air in a spacecraft.
a. Write a balanced equation for each
reaction.
b. Calculate the grams of NaOH and of
LiOH that remove 288 g CO2 from the air.
c. NaOH is less expensive per mole than
LiOH. Based on your calculations,
explain why LiOH is used during shuttle
missions rather than NaOH.
