    2Na + 2H2O -> 2NaOH+H2 22.4L is the molar volume of one mole of any gas at STP conditions. From the stoichiometry of the reaction you can see that 2 moles of Na will produce one mol of H2. Then if you have to produce one mole of H2 you will need 2 moles of Na. The problem also said that the atomic mass of Na is 23.99 g/mol. If you need 2 mol of Na, then 23.99g x 2 = ?
