Propane (C3H8) + oxygen------> carbon dioxide + water

how many grams of carbon dioxide are produced from the reaction of 35.2 grams of propane?

  • applying stoichiometry -

    figure all your reactions in moles and then convert what you need to grams at the end.

    C3H8 + O2 --> CO2 + H2O
    If we balance that equation, we get
    C3H8 + 5O2 --> 3CO2 + 4H2O

    so, each mole of propane produces 3 moles of CO2
