Question

The fizz produced when an Alka-Seltzer tablet is dissolved
in water is due to the reaction between sodium bicarbonate
(NaHCO3) and citric acid (H3C6H5O72)
3 NaHCO3(aq) + H3C6H5O7(aq)-------->
3 CO2(g) + 3H2O(l) + Na3C6H5O7(aq)

In a certain experiment 1.00 g of sodium bicarbonate and
1.00 g of citric acid are allowed to react. The actual yield of COwas 0.436 g.

a.) What is the theoretical yield of CO2? b.) What is the % yield?
