when hydrocarbons are burned in a limited amount of air CO as well as CO2 form. When 0.450 grams of a particular hydrocarbon was burned in air, 0.467 grams of CO, 0.733 grams of CO2, and 0.450 grams of H20 were formed.

a. What is the empirical formula?
I got C2H3! check?

b. How many grams of O2 were used in the reaction?

c. How many grams were required for complete combustion?
