Answer:

Why #"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(s) + O_2(g) rarr CO_2(g)#

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

If 6 moles of #"dioxygen"# are used, at MOST we can form #"6 moles"# of #"carbon dioxide"#. What is the volume of this molar quantity of gas at #"SLC"#.
