# Stoichiometry and Theoretical Yield

**Question description**

Hello, I was wondering if you could help me with two homework questions regarding stoichiometry and theoretical yield. The first question asks me to show that you need 1.00 g of sodium bicarbonate to completely react with with 0.76 g of citric acid. The question comes with a balanced equation H3C6H507(aq) + 3 NaHCO3(aq) --> Na3C6H5O7(aq) + 3 H2O(l) + 3 CO2 (g) How would I solve that?

The second question asks me to calculate the theoretical yield of carbon dioxide based on the mass of sodium bicarbonate. If anyone could help me it would be very much appreciated! Thank you for your time!
