Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The NaHCO3 is the limiting reactant and the HCl is the excess reactant in this experiment. Determine the theoretical yield of the NaCl product, showing all of your work in the space below. (5 points) So far I have 12.71 g NaHCO3 / 83.96 g per mole NaHCO3 = 0.151

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What is the theoretical yield of NaCl with the mass of NaHCO3 being 12.71 g and HCl being in excess. NaHCO3 +HCl → NaCl + CO2+ H2O

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Alright so you found the number of moles of NaHCO3. Im assuming your math is correct (it looks correct). So from here we can find the number of moles of NaCl produced. dw:1440617996106:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0.151 x 1 = .151, but could you mind checking my work of converting grams to moles? (like the process/formula)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2your math is correct but if you want the correct number of significant digits it should be .1514

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh thank you, I appreciate it. So, we don't have to mess with HCl conversion because it's in excess, right? I only really have to convert .1514 mole NaCl to grams?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yea because HCl is in excess it would never be the limiting reagent this means that we are limited by the amount of NaHCO3 present and therefor whatever amount of NaHCO3 we have will directly affect the amount of products we will have when the reaction is completed

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It does. So all that's left is NaCl mole > gram conversion to find it's theoretical yield?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes if you need to find the mass of NaCl produced that would be the only thing left to do in this situation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OK. I'm resubmitting this and I was checking to see if I made any of the same mistakes. Well, all looks in order, you've been a great help thanks.
