Use the following balanced chemical equation to calculate the mass of carbon dioxide produced from the burning of 5.50 kg of jet fuel which can be represented by the molecule C12H26. You should quote your answer to 3 significant figures in units of kg. The relative atomic masses (RAMs) needed to do this calculation are as follows
RAM (carbon) = 12.0; RAM (oxygen) = 16.0; and RAM (hydrogen) = 1.01.
2 C12^H26 + 37 O2 = 24 CO2 + 26 H2O
