Question:

Sodium metal and water react to form sodium hydroxide and hydrogen gas. What mass of Na will react with excess water to produce 15 g NaOH?

Mass Stoichiometry:

Mass-Mass stoichiometry is helpful in those situations when one of the reactant's or product's amount (in grams) is known and another reactant's or product's amount (in grams) has to be predicted. Molar mass of known reactant is necessary in these cases.
