2C2H6 +7O2 --> 4CO2 + 6H2O

since this is already a balanced equation, we can now use their stoich coefficients for the ratios.

first, since we need grams of CO2, we find it's molecular mass. from the periodic table, the masses of C and O are

C = 12 and O = 16 , thus

1*12 + 2*16 = 44 g/mol

therefore,

6 mol O2 * (4 mol CO2 / 7 mol O2) * (44 g CO2 / 1 mol CO2) = 150.86 g CO2

hope this helps~ :)
