Calculate the mass of baking soda, NaHCO3, needed to neutralize 3.0 mL of 3.0 M hydrochloric acid, HCl(aq).
Ok, so I'm super confused. I have the equation, but I'm stuck with what to do with it.
NaHCO3 + HCL --> NaCl + H2O + CO2
I don't think that you need the equation- just calculate the moles in 3.0ml of a 3.0M solution of HCl and then calculate the mass needed from the number of moles for molecular weight of NaHCO3.
That makes so much more sense!! Thanks :)
