Question:

C25H52(s) + 38O2(g)----> 25CO2(g) + 26H2O

How many liters of carbon dioxide are made when 23.4 grams of paraffin (C25H52)burns?

I got 13,000 for my answer.

Is that right??

Thanks:)

  1. You start with 0.0664 moles of paraffin and make 25 times as many moles of CO2, which is 1.66 moles. That is a lot less than 13,000 liters, at any reasonable pressure and temperature. You should specify what P and T they are assuming.
