Problem

Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) undergoes spontaneous decomposition at high enough temperatures to produce the following equation:

2 NaHCO3 (s)  ⇌ Na2CO3 (s)  +  CO2 (g)  +  H2O (g)

Would we obtain more CO2 and H2O by adding extra baking soda to the reaction mixture in:

a. A closed vessel or system

b. An open vessel or system
