A chemist reacts 50.0 mL of 4.5 M carbonic acid (H2CO3) with excess potassium hydroxide. How many grams of potassium carbonate are produced?
Strictly speaking, the chemist cannot react anything with anything else. He can mix things, he can allow things to react; he can even react with them if he isn’t careful. The verb “to react,” however, is intransitive. It does not take a direct object.
How many grams would be produced if he did it right, though?
