## Homework Statement

I am having a problem finding the volume of one compound while having the molarity and volume for another using a balanced equation.

This is the problem statement: What volume in mL of ammonium carbonate is needed to react completely with 200.0 mL of 1.500 M silver (I) nitrate to the following equation?

2AgNO3 (aq) + (NH4)2CO3 (aq) --> AgCO3 (s) + 2NH4NO3 (aq)

## Homework Equations

M1 V1 x M2 V2

## The Attempt at a Solution

I am able to convert the silver (I) nitrate using the molarity and volume values to find its moles by using this equation 1.500 M = moles / 0.200 L => moles = 0.3 mol AgNO3. Next, I used stoichiometry to find the moles of ammonium carbonate with this equation 0.3 mol AgNO3 x (1 mol (NH4)2CO3/2 mol AgNO3) = 0.15 mol (NH4)CO3. Can someone help me figure out how to get the volume if I do not have the molarity of ammonium carbonate?
