2Na(s) + 2H2O(l) → 2NaOH(aq) + H2(g) From the equation above, calculate the mass of…

A.
0.40g
B.
0.80g
C.
4.00g
D.
8.00g

Correct Answer: Option C
Explanation
2Na(s) + 2H2O(l) → 2NaOH(aq) + H2(g)
Relative molecular mass of NaOH = 23 + 16 + 1 = 40smol-1
2 * 23g of sodium react with water to produce
2 * 40g of NaOH
∴ 2.3g of sodium will react with water to produce
(2.3 * 40 * 2)/(23 * 2) = 4.00g
