Homework Help: Organic Chemistry

Posted by Me on Thursday, January 20, 2011 at 10:59pm.

I realize this is a general chemistry stoichiometry question, however I can not fully grasp it.

I am supposed to calculate the theoretical amount (volume) of 3M sodium hydroxide (NaOH) needed to convert 1.5g of benzoic acid to its salt.

I got 0.012 moles of bezoic acid present at the beginning and by looking at the balanced equation I see that there is a 1:1 ratio between the benzoic acid and NaOH, however I have no idea where to go from here. I am so confused.

Could someone help as soon as possible? Thanks!
