Stoichiometry: $Na$/Water Reaction, Hydroxide Ions Produced, pOH


Base your answers to the following questions on the balanced equation written below when $0.100\ g$ of sodium is added to $100.00\ mL$ of distilled water.

Sodium is the limiting reactant.

$$2Na _{(s)} \ + \ 2H_{2}O _{(l)} \rightarrow 2Na^{+} _{(aq)} \ +\ 2OH^{-} _{(aq)} \ +\ H_{2\ (g)} $$
