given this reaction: 2CO(g) + O2(g)2CO2(g) what volume of CO2 will be produced when 8.45 liter of CO reacts with enough oxygen? I thought the answer would be 8.45 liters of CO2 because there was a ratio in the balanced equation of 2CO yielding 2CO2, so I thought the ration would be 2 to 2 or 1 to 1, but according to the answer book, that is wrong. I don't understand why

I think your answer is correct and the answer in the book is wrong, unless I'm missing something here.
