Step 1

Given:

Mass of water = 10.1 g

Mass of HCl = 28.1 g

Mass of NaOH = 40 g

% yield of water =?

Balanced chemical equation:

HCl + NaOH ------------> NaCl + H2O

Step 2

Calculate the moles of both HCl and NaOH given:

Mass of NaOH = 40 g  = 1 mol.

Mass of HCl = 28.1 g

1 mol. ----------- 36.5 g

? mol. Is ---------- 28.1 g

28.1 X 1 / 36.5

= 0.76 mol.

We need HCl and NaOH in 1:1&...
