Ethanol (C2H6O) is combusted with oxygen to produce carbon dioxide and wateraccording to the following reaction:
C2H6O + 3O2 -----> 2H2O + 3CO2

If 50g of ethanol is combusted, determine the volume of carbon dioxide that will be produced if the temperature is 25oC and the pressure is 100kPa.

  1. 1. mols ethanol = grams/molar mass
    2. Use the coefficients in the balanced equation to convert mols ethanol to mols CO2.
    3. Use PV = nRT and substitute n = mols and the other conditions and solve for volume in L. Don't forget T must be in kelvin.
