Unformatted text preview: 19 3) Using the length, width, and height measurements you made of your bag, calculate the experimentally determined volume of the airbag in liters. Results and Discussion: 1) Was the airbag volume in your first experiment larger or smaller than predicted? 2) What could be the source(s) of the difference between the theoretical and experimental volume of the bag? 3) Did the 1:1 ratio of NaHCO 3 to CH 3 COOH reaction go to completion? How can you tell? 4) What chemistry strategies did you employ to maximize the volume of CO 2 produced by your airbag? 5) What mechanical strategies did you employ to maximize the volume of CO 2 produced by your airbag? 6) Would this method be suitable for inflating automobile airbags? Why or why not? 20...
