n = 0.0685 mol CO2
A 6.54 g sample of a mixture of magnesium carbonate and calcium carbonate is treated with excess hydrochloric acid. The resulting reaction produces 1.73 L of carbon dioxide gas at 28 oC and 744 torr pressure.
Assuming that the reactions are complete, calculate the percentage by mass of magnesium carbonate in the mixture.
