0.330 mol of octane is allowed to react with 0.820 mol of oxygen. Which is the limiting reactant?
Dioxygen gas is the limiting reagent. We need the balanced equation representing the combustion of octane:
We need the balanced equation representing the combustion of octane:
Is this stoichiometrically balanced? Do not trust my arithmetic!
The balanced equation specifies that
Most of the time, in internal combustion, and diesel engines, and furnaces we would expect SOME of the hydrocarbon to combust incompletely to give
Would I know that I produced the
How would energy transfer in these reactions? Would they produce or consume energy? Why?
