Liquid octane will react with gaseous oxygen to produce gaseous carbon dioxide and gaseous water. Suppose 5.71 g of octane is mixed with 5.0 g of oxygen. Calculate the maximum mass of carbon dioxide that could be produced by the chemical reaction. Be sure your answer has the correct number of significant digits.

Please show steps I am very confused on how to work this!

  1. start with a balanced reaction.
    Convert the 5.71g octane, and 5g of O2 to moles. Which is the limiting reactant? That reactant will determine the products.
    I wlll be happy to check your work.
