Ca(OH)2(s) reacts with HCl(aq) to form CaCl2(aq) and H2O.  If stomach acid is 0.100 M HCl(aq), calculate the number of milliliters of stomach acid which can be neutralized by 0.855 g of Ca(OH)2(s).


Expert Answer

Step 1

The chemical equation will be:

Са(ОН), -2нс1— Сас1, - 2н,о

Step 2

Moles of Ca(OH)2 = mass/molar mass of Ca(OH)2.

Molar mass of Ca(OH) 74.093 g/...
