3.92×1023

*How many grams are formed?*

did anyone figure out how to get the grams of H2O formed?

• Chem Electron Config -

start by defining the reaction:

C2H5OH + 3O2 = 2CO2 + 3H2O

Now you know that each mole of C2H5OH produces 3 moles of H2O.

convert grams C2H5OH to moles, multiply by 3, and convert moles H2O to grams.
