How much carbon monoxide will result if #222*kg# of carbon are combusted to give #5/8# equiv of carbon monoxide?
Some of your data are superfluous.......we finally get over
We need a stoichiometric equation:
And thus there is 1:1 equivalence between carbon and its oxidation product.
Because some of this is lost, we get finally,
And this represents a mass of:
Now clearly, if you received this question in an exam, you would be asked to calculate the volume this gas would occupy under standard conditions.
