CaH2(s) + H2O (l)---> Ca(OH)2 (aq) + H2

This reaction is sometimes used to inflate life rafts, weather balloons, and the like, where a simple, compact means of generating H2 is desired. How many grams of CaH2 are needed to generate 10.0L of H2 gas if the pressure is 740mmHg are 23 degrees Celsius?
