A baker uses sodium hydrogen carbonate as the leavening agent in a banana nut quickbread. the baking soda decomposes according to two possible reactions. 1. 2 NaHCO3 = Na2CO3+H2O+CO2
2. NaHCO3+H=H2O+CO2+Na. calculate the volume in mL of CO2 that forms at 180 degrees C and .975 atm per gram of NaHCO3 by each of the reaction processes. if you could show me by steps that would really help i've tried using PV=nRT
You so the stoichiometry and calculate the moles CO2 present, then use PV = nRT to calculate volume.
