| **Calculate the mass of the nitric acid solution (the mass fraction of HNO3 in it is 14%) required for the reaction with 2 mol of sodium carbonate.**

1. Let’s make a chemical equation, not forgetting to put down the coefficients:

Na2CO3 + 2HNO3 = 2NaNO3 + CO2 + H2O.

2. Let’s make the proportion:

Na2CO3 / HNO3 = 1/2; hence:

n (HNO3) = 4 mol.

3. Find the mass of HNO3:

m (HNO3) = n * M = 4 * 63 = 252g.

4.m (solution) = 252 / 0.14 = 1800g.

Answer: m (HNO3 solution) = 1800g.
