The amount in moles of spilled sulfuric acid is

According to stoichiometry of the chemical reaction

the amount of sodium bicarbonate is two times of the amount of sulfuric acid. Thus

The mass of sodium bicarbonate can be calculated:

no. of moles of NaHCO3 = mass/molar mass

= 2016/84.007 = 23.99 moles

Volume required :-

Molarity = no. of moles of solute/ volume (L)

6.0M = 23.99/volume(L)

Volume(L) = 23.99/6 = 3.99 L
