Benzene, C6H6, is a known carcinogen that burns in air according to the following unbalanced equation:
C6H6(l) + O2(g) CO2(g) + H2O(g)
a. What is the mole ratio of O2 to C6H6?
b. How many moles of O2 are required to react with each mole of C6H6?
c. How many moles of O2 are required to react with 0.38 mol of C6H6?
Balance the equation and that will answer b and c.
2C6H6 + 15O2 ==> 12CO2 +6H2O
