Do you study solubility guidelines in your Chemistry course? Where can you find these trends listed or discussed in your learning materials? Would you try to look for solubility information on sodium carbonate in a handbook?

Even if the procedure would allow you to heat (but it's not the case) you don't need it because Na2CO3 is very water soluble.

Depending on concentration, I would recommend ~30 minutes stirring.
