Na3PO4 + HCl: Concentration/Stoichiometry Problem

Sodium phosphate, Na3PO4, reacts with HCl to form H3PO4 and NaCl. If 0.1 mole of sodium phosphate is completely converted to H3PO4 in 500 mL of solution what will be the concentration of the H3PO4 solution?

Solution Preview

First of all, balance the equation:
Na3PO4 + 3 HCl >>>> H3PO4 + 3 NaCl

Next is to look at the mole ratio ...
