Homework Help: chemistry

Posted by Susan on Tuesday, April 1, 2014 at 3:17pm.

Unsure how to solve this without a formula... I think its combustion analysis?


CxHy + O2 --> CO2 + H20
CxHY has a MW=78g/mol. 100g of CxHy yields 338g CO2 and 138g of H2O. What is the formula CxHY (what are x and y)? Balance the reaction equation.


Any help at all is appreciated.
