From a laboratory process designed to separate water into hydrogen and oxygen gas, a student collected 11.6 g of hydrogen and 65.9 g of oxygen. How much water was originally involved in the process?
don't understand how to work it out
This problem has the same trouble as in your other post below. It is SUPPOSED to be
water ==> hydrogen + oxygen
So water SHOULD be 11.6 + 69.5 but I get a different number if I work it a different way. I should get the same number both ways. That tell me that person making the problem just made up numbers.
