I have a question about chemistry.
3 NaHCO3 + C6H8O7 = C6H5Na3O7 + 3 CO2 + 3 H2O
Considering this, the amount of CO2 in moles should be equal to the amount of NaHCO3, am I correct?
Because we were doing an experiment and with calculating, I've got about 2,5-times less CO2 than NaHCO3, which would mean that my measurements were incorrect, right?
No. The amount of moles of any given molecule is directly correlating to the number of grams in a substance. 3NaHCO3 is 23 NA, 1 H, 12 C, 16 * 3 O, all multiplied by 3. So that is 252. 3CO2 is (12+32)*2 which is 88. One Mole of NAHCO3 is 84. One Mole of CO2 is 44.
