What should the ratio be, equimolar?

Dry reaction, or not?

How high should this be heated?

I will probably have more questions after these are answered, but for now.........

You can probably use an electric kitchen oven for the heating. I also think you'd end up with a purer product if you used NaOH instead of Na2CO3...
