Use the following balanced chemical equation to calculate the mass of carbon dioxide produced from the burning of 5.50 kg of jet fuel which can be represented by the molecule C12H26. You should quote your answer to 3 significant figures in units of kg. The relative atomic masses (RAMs) needed to do this calculation are as follows
RAM (carbon) = 12.0; RAM (oxygen) = 16.0; and RAM (hydrogen) = 1.01.
2 C12^H26 + 37 O2 = 24 CO2 + 26 H2O

  • CHEMISTRY -

    Convert 5.5 kg C12H26 to mols.
    Using the coefficients in the balanced equation, convert mols C12H26 to mols CO2.
    Convert mass CO2 to kg CO2.
    Post your work if you get stuck.
