From the following combustion: 1-butanol + oxygen = carbon dioxide + water. How many grams of carbon dioxide and water are produced when 130.6 grams of 1-butanol is completely burned? Please help me! I have not a clue! Thanks so much!

1. Write the equation and balance it.
2. Convert 130 g 1-butanol to moles. # moles = grams/molar mass.
3. Using the coefficients in the balanced equation, convert moles 1-butanol to moles H2O and moles CO2 (two separate conversions).
4. Now convert moles CO2 and moles H2O to grams. # grams = moles x molar mass.
Post your work if you get stuck.
