What mass of CO2 could be formed from the reaction of 16 g of CH4 with 32 g of O2 ?

    Here is a worked example of a stoichiometry problem. http://www.jiskha.com/science/chemistry/stoichiometry.html

  • Chemistry - ,

    C H4 + 2 O2 --> CO2 + 2H2O
    C is 12 g/mol
    CH4 is 16 g/mol so we have one mol

    O is 16 g/mol
    O2 is 32 g/mol
    so we have one mole but we need 2
    so
    Only half a mole of CH4 reacts with the one mole of O2
    That is 6 grams of C with 16 of our 32 grams of O
    so 6 + 16 = 22 grams of CO2
