The equation for burning C2H2 is
2C2H2(g) + 5O2(g) ⎯→ 4CO2(g) + 2H2O(g)
a. If 15.9 L C2H2 react at STP, how many
moles of CO2 are produced? (Hint: At
STP, 1 mol = 22.41 L for any gas.)
b. How many milliliters of CO2 (density =
1.977 g/L) can be made when 59.3 mL O2
(density = 1.429 g/L) react?
Convert 15.9 L C2H2 to moles. moles = L/22.41.
Convert moles C2H2 to moles CO2 using the coefficients in the balanced equation.
Convert 59.3 mL O2 to moles, convert moles O2 to moles CO2, convert moles CO2 to mL.
