sodium carbonate and hydrochloric acid react to give sodium chloride, carbon dioxide and water. How many grams of sodium carbonate and hydrochloric acid would be required to produce 286g of carbon dioxide?

step by step answers please:)

  • chemistry -

    gotta work with moles.
    286g CO2 * 1mole/44g = 6.5 moles CO2

    Now recall the reaction:

    Na2CO3 + 2HCl = 2NaCl + CO2 + H2O

    Each mole of CO2 requires
    1 mole Na2CO3
    2 moles HCl

    so, we need

    6.5 moles Na2CO3 = 689g
    13 moles HCl = 474g
