  1. 2C2H2 + 5O2 --> 4CO2 + 2H2O

    mols ethyne = grams/molar mass = ?
    Convert mols ethyne to mols CO2 using the coefficients in the balanced equation. That tells you that you get 4 mols CO2 for every 2 mols C2H2.
    Now convert mols CO2 to grams CO2. grams = mols x molar mass = ?

    Post your work if you get stuck.
