Name : Joseph “Fitz” Maro Lab Partners : Bryan Keelon and Laura Taylor Title: Chemical Moles: Converting Baking Soda to Table Salt Date: October 2, 2007 I hereby declare upon my word of honor that I have neither given nor received unauthorized help on this work. Abstract : - In this lab we investigated in more detail a reaction we used in Experiment 1, the reaction of sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO 3 ) with hydrochloric acid (HCl). The reaction of baking soda with HCl produces salt (NaCl, table salt), water, and carbon dioxide. This follows the general rule that an acid plus a base yields a salt plus water. Once we preformed the reactions we did quantitative measurements to find out how many moles of salt are formed from one mole of NaHCO 3 . Although we can’t measure moles directly, we were able to measure the weights, and get the molar ratio accordingly. -Our results very accurate I believe, in our three trials of the quantative analysis we found molar ratios of 0.97, 1.1 and 1.1. The proper answer is
