#### Solution Preview

In the reaction CaCO3 + 2HNO3 → Ca(NO3)2 + CO2 + H2O, how many milliliters of 0.1015 M HNO3 are required to react with 0.9857 grams of CaCO3?

The given reaction is:
CaCO3 + 2HNO3 → Ca(NO3)2 + CO2 + H2O

From the stoichiometry of reaction, we can see that 1 mol of CaCO3 reacts with 2 moles of HNO3

Moles of CaCO3 = mass/molar mass = 0.9857g/100.0g/mol = 0.009857 moles

Therefore, as per equation, moles of HNO3 required = 2 x moles of CaCO3
...
