We are asked to calculate the mass (in grams) of carbon dioxide formed.
Na2CO3(aq) + 2 HNO3(aq) → 2 NaNO3(aq) + CO2(g) + H2O(l)
Molar mass CO2 = 44.01 g/mol
35.1 mL of a 0.126 M Na2CO3 solution completely react with a 0.150 M HNO3 solution according to the following balanced chemical equation: Na2CO3(aq) + 2 HNO3(aq) → 2 NaNO3(aq) + CO2(g) + H2O(l)
What mass (in grams) of carbon dioxide is formed?
