Stoichiometry and Measurements Lab


Introduction to Lab Problem Astronauts in the space station need to produce 0.200 mol of calcium carbonate for a certain experiment they are performing. To do this, they combine sodium carbonate and calcium nitrate in a double replacement reaction. This means 0.200 mole of Na 2CO3 is needed. t is then !eighed out and dissol"ed in !ater to form a solution of sodium carbonate. (a) Write an equation to show what happens when this solid dissolves in water (!) "ind the mass o# Na2CO3 needed

0.200 mole of calcium nitrate is needed. t is also !eighed and dissol"ed in !ater to form a calcium nitrate solution. (a) Write an equation to show what happens when this solid dissolves in water (!) "ind the mass o# Ca(N$%)& needed

The sodium carbonate solution is mixed !ith the calcium nitrate solution. (a) Write a !alanced equation #or the reaction

(!) State the type o# reaction (c) 's there a limitin( reactant) '# so* determine the limitin( reactant

(c) What process would you use to separate the solid product) (d) "ind the theoretical masses o# !oth products o!tained in this reaction

(e) '# only % 4+( o# calcium car!onate #orms* calculate the percenta(e yield and percent error
