Purpose: To ascertain the decomposition reaction of baking soda using stoichiometry. The purpose is also to find the correct equation for the reaction.

Hypothesis: The chemical equation for the decomposition of baking soda is sodium bicarbonate (s) → sodium carbonate (s) + carbon dioxide (g) + water (g)

Materials:
• Baking Soda
• Balance
• Beaker
• Evaporation Dish
• Hot Plate
• Tongs
• Spatula
• Weigh Dish

Procedure: Begin by measuring the mass of the empty beaker. Then, place 2.00 grams of baking soda into the empty beaker. Using the tongs put the beaker filled with 2.00 grams of baking soda onto the hot plate. The beaker needs to be heated for about ten minutes.
