When sodium hydrogencarbonate is heated to 112 degress celsius it decomposes and the gas, carbon dioxide, is given off:

2NaHCO3 (s) ---> Na2CO3 (s) + CO2 (g) + H20 (G)

b) i. Calculate the theoretical volume of carbon dioxide produced by the complete decomposition of 1.68g of sodium hydrogencarbonate.

(Take the molar volume of carbon dioxide to be 23 litres/mol)

---------------------

Any help with this question would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

First of all calculate the no. of moles of sodium hydrogencarbonate:

= 1.68/84
= 0.02 moles

Since there is a 2 : 1 ratio between 2NaHCO3 and CO2, the no. of moles of CO2 is:

0.01 moles

Now we can find the Volume, by using this relationship:

user posted image
Volume = Molar Volume * no. of moles
= 23 * 0.01
= 230cm3

Volume = 230cm3
