# Problem: Hydrochloric acid HCl reacts with sodium carbonate Na2CO3, forming sodium chloride NaCl, water H2O, and carbon dioxide CO2. This equation is balanced as written:2 HCl(aq) + Na2CO3(aq) → 2NaCl(aq) + H2O(l) + CO2(g)What volume of 1.50 M HCl in liters is needed to react completely (with nothing left over) with 0.500 L of 0.200 M Na2CO3? Express your answer numerically in liters.
