mass and volume of CO2 produced by limestone (CaCO3)

How many grams of CO2 are formed by complete reaction with 33.7 grams of limestone? What is the volume of CO2 at STP?

Solution Summary

When limestone (CaCO3) reacts with acid, CO2 is produced. The solution shows how to calculate the amount of CO2 produced during this reaction. Moreover, the volume of CO2 is also found under STP condition by ideal gas law.
