When an antacid tablet dissolves in water, the fizz is due to a reaction between sodium hydrogen carbonate (sodium bicarbonate, NaHCO3) and citric acid (H3C6H5O7).

3 NaHCO3(aq) + H3C6H5O7(aq) 3 CO2(g) + 3 H2O(l) + Na3C6H5O7(aq)

How many moles of Na3C6H5O7 can be produced if one tablet containing 0.0289 mol of NaHCO3 is dissolved?

The given equation is
3 NaHCO3(aq) + H3C6H5O7(aq) ------>3 CO2(g) + 3 H2O(l) + Na3C6H5O7(aq)
So, 3 molecules of NaHCO3 gives one molecule of Na3C6H5O7
Or 3 moles of NaHCO3 gives one mole of...
