If a total of 13.5 mol of NaHCO3 and 4.5 mol of C6H8O7 react, how many moles of CO2 and Na3C6H5O7 will be produced?
3NaHCO3(aq) + C6H8O7(aq) > 3CO2(g) + 3H2O(s) + Na3C6H5O7(aq)
This is a limiting reagent problem.
Step 1. Convert reagent 1 to mols of product.
Step 2. Convert reagent 2 to mols of product.
3. The smaller value (if there is a smaller value) will the number of mols CO2 produced.
Do the same for the salt.
