In the lab, 5.8 L of methane gas is burned with excess oxygen gas at SATP. How much carbon dioxide gas is produced?
**Based on the balanced chemical equation the ratio of methane gas to carbon dioxide is 1:1, this being said, does it make sense that as 5.8 L of methane gas is burned that 5.8 L of carbon dioxide would be produced??
Yes, as long as the pressure/temperature of the CH4 is the same as the CO2 being produced.posted by DrBob222
