Aqueous hydrobromic acid 


 will react with solid sodium hydroxide 


 to produce aqueous sodium bromide 


 and liquid water 


. Suppose 76. g of hydrobromic acid is mixed with 15.8 g of sodium hydroxide. Calculate the minimum mass of hydrobromic acid that could be leftover by the chemical reaction. Be sure your answer has the correct number of significant digits.


Expert Answer

Step 1

Given information:

Mass of hydrobromic acid (HBr) = 76 g

Mass of sodium hydroxide (NaOH) = 15.8 g

Step 2

In any balanced equation, limiting reactant is a reactant that is completely used and no excess quantity of it is left behind after production of products.

Step 3

The chemical equation for reaction between HB...
