What mass of Na2CO3, in grams, is required for complete reaction with 50.0 mL of 0.125 M HNO3?Na2CO3(aq) + 2 HNO3(aq)→ 2 NaNO3(aq) + CO2(g) + H2O(l)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

It should be determine that the mass of Na2CO3, in grams, which is required to react completely with 50.0mlof0.125MHNO3

Concept introduction:

Numberofmole=GivenmassofthesubstanceMolarmass

• The molar mass of an element or compound is the mass in grams of 1 mole of that substance, and it is expressed in the unit of grams per mol (g/mol).
• For chemical reaction balanced chemical reaction equation written in accordance with the Law of conservation of mass.
• Law of conservation of mass states that for a reaction total mass of the reactant and product must be equal.
• Stoichiometric factor is a relationship between reactant and product which is obtained from the balanced chemical equation for a particular reaction.
Explanation

Balanced chemical equation for the given reaction is,

â€‚Â Na2CO3(aq)â€‰+2HNO3(aq)â€‰â€‰â†’â€‰2NaNO3(aq)â€‰+â€‰CO2(g)â€‰+â€‰H2O(l)

The amount (moles) of HNO3 Â available can be calculated by as follows,

Before that 50.0â€‰mLHNO3 is converted into L.

Thus amount of HNO3 available,

â€‚Â 0.05â€‰Lâ€‰HNO3â€‰Ã—â€‰(0.125â€‰molâ€‰HNO31â€‰Lâ€‰HNO3)â€‰â€‰=â€‰0.006250â€‰molâ€‰HNO3

By using the stoichiometric factor calculating the amount of Na2CO3Â  required based on the amount of HNO3 as follows
