Mass of a substance

  1. Aug 19, 2012 #1
    A solution of 100.00mL of 0.2000mol/L sodium carbonate and 200.00mL of 0.1000mol/L calcium nitrate solutions are mixed together according to the reaction: sodium carbonate + calcium nitrate→ calcium carbonate + sodium nitrate. how would you calculate the mass of calcium carbonate that would precipitate?

    Start with the balanced reaction equation. How many moles of sodium carbonate? Of calcium nitrate? This is simple stoichiometry and conversion between concentration, volume, number of moles and mass.
