1. CO + 2H2 = CH3OH
2mol 1mol
?gr 45gr

45 x 2 = 90 grams

hope i got it right for you

2. Equation by Amanda is ok.
part b is not.

Convert 45.0 g CH3OH to mols. # mols = grams/molar mass.
Convert mols CH3OH to mols H2 using the coefficients in the balanced equation.
Convert mols H2 to grams H2 remembering that grams = mols H2 x molar mass H2.
Post your work if you get stukc.
