Elixirs such as Alka-Seltzer use the reaction of sodium bicarbonate with citric acid in aqueous solution to produce a fizz: 3NaHCO3 1aq2 1 C6H8O7 1aq2 h 3CO2 1g2 1 3H2O1l2 1 Na3C6H5O7 1aq2 a. What mass of C6H8O7 should be used for every 1.0 3 102 mg NaHCO3? b. What mass of CO2(g) could be produced from such a mixture?
Problem 3.79Elixirs such as Alka-Seltzer use the reaction of sodium bicarbonate with citric acid inaqueous solution to produce a fizz:3NaHCO (aq) + C H O (aq) 3CO (g) + 3H O(I) + Na C H O (aq) 3 6 8 7 2 2 3 6 5 7a.
