How do you determine the mass of carbon dioxide produced when 0.85 g of butane reacts with oxygen according to the following equation: #2C_4H_10 + 13O_2 -> 8CO_2 10H_2O#?
Given the stoichiometry, each moles of butane gives
This is an equivalent mass of
In my stoichiometric equation, I used an half equiv of dioxygen in order to balance the equation. I do this because it makes the 'rithmetic a bit easier.
