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:2HCl(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.
