Given the Mole Balance for Acetic Acid and Sodium Bicarbonate Reaction

Question

The UND ChemECar team is trying out a new reaction this year:

CH3COOH + NaHCO3 → CH3COONa + H2O + CO2 (Acetic Acid + Sodium Bicarbonate → Sodium Acetate + Water + Carbon Dioxide)

The reaction is carried out in a small glass vessel with inlet and outlet connections on the top and a stir bar inside to keep everything mixed. Initially the reactor is filled with a concentrated aqueous solution of acetic acid. A dilute aqueous sodium bicarbonate solution is added to the reactor at a constant rate. Sodium acetate remains dissolved in the liquid mixture, while all the CO2 formed is gaseous and is vented out the top. Some water vapor also exits the reactor with the CO2. Write a mole balance for each of the compounds present in the reactor.

 

Summary

The question belongs to Chemical Engineering and it is about new chemical reaction involving acetic acid and sodium bicarbonate, giving rise to sodium acetate, water and carbon dioxide. The mole balance for each of the compounds has been discussed in the solution.

Note: The solution is in handwritten format.

    Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
