A 15.00 g sample of calcium carbonate was placed in excess hydrochloric acid (HCl). A reaction occurred producing calcium chloride, water, and carbon dioxide.

Formula: CaCO3 + 2HCl = CaCl2 + H2O + CO2 (already balanced)
  • How many moles of CaCO3 reacted?
  • Theoretically, how many grams water should be produced?
Answer both questions, show work please
