Question #191682

Aqueous hydrochloric acid HCl will react with solid sodium hydroxide NaOH to produce aqueous sodium chloride NaCl and liquid water H2O. Suppose 3.28 g of hydrochloric acid is mixed with 2.2 g of sodium hydroxide. Calculate the maximum mass of Sodium Chloride that could be produced by the chemical reaction. Round your answer to 2 significant digits.

given reaction is-

"HCl(aq)+NaOH(s)\\to NaCl(aq)+H_2O(l)"

moles of HCl taken =

"=\\frac{3.28}{36.5}=0.090\\ mole"

"\\frac{}{}" moles of NaOH taken

"=\\frac{2.2}{40}=0.055\\ mole"

So NaOH is the limiting reagent here

then

mass of Nacl formed = moles of Nacl multiplied by its molar mass

Moles of Nacl will be equal to moles of NaOH taken as they react in the ratio of 1:1.

"=0.055\\times 58.44=3.2\\ gm\\ Nacl"
