Reaction: Na2CO3 + 2 HCl -> 2 NaCl + CO2 + H2o

How many grams of NaCl can be produced from the reaction of 1.35g of Na2CO3 with 125mL of 0.265 M HCl?

  • chemistry -

    Another limiting reagent problem. How do I know that? Because amounts are given for BOTH reactrants.

    mols Na2COP3 = grams/molar mass = ?
    mols HCl = M x L = ?

    Using the coefficients in the balanced equation, convert mols Na2CO3 t mols Nacl.
    Do the same for mols HCl to mols NaCl.

    It is likely that the two values will not be the same which means one of them is wrong; the correct value in limiting reagent problems is ALWAYS the smaller one and the reagent producing that value is the limiting reagent.

    Now convert mols NaCl to g. grams = mols x molar mass. This is the theoretical yield.
