What mass of carbon dioxide will be produced by #"15.6 g C"# if oxygen gas is in excess? #"C + O"_2"##rarr##"CO"_2"#
Since there is oxygen gas left over, it is the reactant in excess. This means that carbon is the limiting reagent, so we will use the given mass of carbon and stoichiometry to determine how much carbon dioxide can be produced.
We need the molar masses of
We will need to make the following conversions using stoichiometry:
Note: Some people will leave out the mole ratio since it is
