1. NaHCO3 + HCl ==> NaCl + H2O + CO2

mols NaHCO3 = grams/molar mass = 20/84 = approx 0.24.

mols CO2 formed if NaHCO3 is the limiting reagent (LR)is
0.24 mols NaHCO3 x (1 mol CO2/1 mol NaHCO3) = 0.24 mols CO2.

mols HCl = 22/35.5 = approx 0.62.
mols CO2 formed if HCl is the LR is 0.6 x (1 mol CO2/1 mol HCl) = 0.6 mols CO2.

In LR problems, the SMALLER amount is ALWAYS the correct answer; therefore, 0.24 mols CO2 will be formed.
grams CO2 = 0.24 mol CO2 x molar mass CO2 = ? g is you want grams and not mols CO2.
NOTE: I have estimated these numbers; you should redo all of the calculations to get better numbers.
