A car uses 114 g of petrol to travel one mile.

Calculate the mass of carbon dioxide produced when this car travels one mile.

  • chemistry -

    I will assume petrol is octane although that isn't quite correct.
    2C8H18 + 25O2 ==> 16CO2 + 18H2O
    mols petrol = grams/molar mass
    mols CO2 poduced = mols C8H18 x (16 mols CO2/2 mols C8H18) = ?
    Then g CO2 = mols CO2 x molar mass CO2.
