# How many moles of CO_2 are produced if 6 moles of O_2 are used?

Feb 17, 2017

Why $\text{6 moles.........}$

#### Explanation:

And how do we know? Because we can write a chemical equation that explicitly tells us the equivalence of each reactant, and the products:

$C \left(s\right) + {O}_{2} \left(g\right) \rightarrow C {O}_{2} \left(g\right)$

Each equiv, each mole, of reactant gives one mole of carbon dioxide product.

If 6 moles of $\text{dioxygen}$ are used, at MOST we can form $\text{6 moles}$ of $\text{carbon dioxide}$. What is the volume of this molar quantity of gas at $\text{SLC}$.
