Chemistry Octane Combustion
posted by Chemistry on .
Write the balanced equation for the combustion of octane (C8H18). Assuming that gasoline is 100% octane, with a density of 0.692 g/mL, what mass of CO2 is produced by combustion of 1.7 1010 gal of gasoline?
Need help on how to get started, I have the balanced equation...
Find the mass of octane in that number of gallons with that density. Now the moles, and then use the balanced equation.
