# ]{-d=2 KJA student adds 250. mL of deionized water (H2O) to a sample O=Ptaining 75.00grams of sodium solid. Given the following unbalanced equation, what mass of sodium hydroxide should have been formed, based on the limiting reactant? Given: the density of water at room temperature is 0.998 g/mL. First, please balance the reaction. HINT: Since water is not a solution, molarity does not apply. Water is a pure liquid, and you'll need to use the density to first convert volume to mass._Na (s) + _H2O (l) -> _NaOH (aq) + _H2 (g)

Step 1

The number of moles of a given chemical species refers to the ratio of its mass to the molar mass. The mathematical formula is as shown below:

Step 2

The term limiting reagent in a given reaction can be defined as the reagent which totally gets consumed in a given reaction and the amount of the products which is formed in the given chemical reaction gets limited by this reagent.

Step 3

The given reaction i...
