## Question:

Sodium reacts with water according to the following reaction. How much hydrogen at STP would be produced by the reaction of 1.20 grams of sodium?

{eq}2Na(s) + 2H_2O(l) \to 2NaOH(aq) + H_2(g) {/eq}

## Stoichiometry:

In chemistry, stoichiometry measures the relative quantitative amounts of the reactants and the products in a chemical equation. This quantitative relationship between the reactants and the products can then be used to determine the desired amounts of the reactants or products in the chemical reaction.

We have the following reaction equation:

{eq}\rm 2Na(s) + 2H_2O(l) \to \rm 2NaOH(aq) + H_2(g) {/eq}

From the above equation, we can see that 2...
