How many pounds of carbon dioxide are produced from burning one gallon of gasoline? assume gasoline is 100%, and the density of octane is .78g/ml.

  • Gen Chemestry -

    Write the equation and balance it.
    Convert 1 gallon octane to mL, then use the density to convert to grams.
    Convert grams octane to mols octane (mols octane = grams/molar mass).
    Using the coefficients in the balanced equation, convert mols octane to mols CO2.
    Convert mols CO2 to grams CO2 by using grams CO2 = mols CO2 x molar mass CO2.
    Convert g CO2 to pounds CO2.
    Check my thinking. Post your work if you get stuck.
