Find te Yield of Carbon Dioxide in an Alkaseltzer Reaction.

Equation:
HCH3COO (Acetic Acid)+ NaHCO3 (Sodium Bicarbonate) -> NaCH3COO+ H20 (water)+ CO2 (Carbon Dioxide)

So i know to find the Yield its Actual Yield / Theoretical Yield.

How do i find the Theoretical Yield and Actual Yield by using the equation PV=nRT or stoichiometry??

  1. Stoichiometry will give you the theoretical yield. PV = nRT is only useful for gases. Here is a link for solving stoichiometry problems if you need it.
