break up the carbon dioxide to C and O
break up the water into H and O
now total them up, change to moles
H=.2g=.2/1= .2 moles
Notice that the sum of H and C=1.0g, so all O was atmospheric
now divide by the least of the above (.066)
a hydrocarbon was burnt completely and the products were bubbled into excess of Ca(OH)2 solution. The resulting mixture was filtered, and the residue dried and weighed. The mass of the hydrocarbon was found to be 10.00g. In a
When 1.63 g sample of an unknown hydrocarbon is completely burned in oxygen, 4.97 g of CO2 are produced. What is the percentage by mass of hydrogen in this hydrocarbon? THANK YOUU Found out the formula: 4CH+5O2--> 4CO2+2H2O then
a 5.15g sample of a hydrocarbon is burned in oxygen, producing 15.6g of carbon dioxide and 8.45g of water. Assuming an excess of oxygen, what is the empirical formula of the hydrocarbon? how do i set this problem up and how do i
A liquid hydrocarbon (Cx Hy) is found to be 16.37% H by mass. A 1.158-g vaporized sample of the hydrocarbon has a 358 mL volume at 71.0 C and 749 mmHg. what is the molecular formula for this hydrocarbon?
10cm^3 of aa hydrocarbon was completely combusted in 200cm^3 of O2. It was found that there was 20cm^3 of O2 remaining and the volume of CO2 produced was 120cm^3. Determine the formula of the hydrocarbon.
