Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) decomposes when it is heated:
2 NaHCO31s2 ∆ Na2CO31s2 + CO21g2 + H2O1g2
ΔH° = + 136 kJ
Consider an equilibrium mixture of reactants and products in a closed container. How does the number of moles of CO2 change when the mixture is disturbed by the following:
(b) Adding water vapor
