How many grams of KCl would be formed in the reaction of 3.000 g of K{eq}_2 {/eq}CO{eq}_3 {/eq} and HCl?

Question:

How many grams of KCl would be formed in the reaction of 3.000 g of K{eq}_2 {/eq}CO{eq}_3 {/eq} and HCl?

Mass of Product:

The mass of the product formed in a chemical reaction can be calculated from the balanced equation of the reaction and mass of the limiting reactant. In a chemical reaction if the mass of a reactant is not given then consider that it is present in excess amount.

The balanced equation:

{eq}\rm K_2CO_3 + 2HCl \rightarrow 2KCl + H_2O + CO_2 {/eq}

As the mass of HCl is not given, so consider HCl present in...
