Is it possible to use baking soda, NaHCO3(s), and 2.00 mol dm-3 HCl(aq) to generate a gas that will fill a zip-lock bag and act as an air bag?
1. To determine if baking soda and hydrochloric acid can create a suitable air bag
2. To determine the volume of hydrochloric acid needed
If given baking soda and 2.00 mol dm-3 HCl(aq), it is possible to create an effective airbag, if the correct quantity of each reactant is put into the reaction in order to create a distinct quantity of products. If an incorrect quantity was added, two possibilities can occur; a limp airbag or the airbag will be too firm and explode.
In this investigation the limiting reagent is the 2.00 mol dm-3 HCl(aq) as oppose to the baking soda due to the dangerous nature of hydrochloric acid, in case of the airbag exploding if there is an excess of this compound the victim would possibly suffer burns and poisoning, while if there is an excess of baking soda the victim would not suffer additional injuries.
In order for the reaction to take place only when
