# How to calculate the number of moles of CO2 produced?

##### 1 Answer

#### Answer:

We work out the molar equivalence of each reagent.....but we strikes a problem..........

#### Explanation:

The arithmetic is a bit easier if we use this half-integral coefficient. Is it balanced? Don't trust my arithmetic.

And thus there is INSUFFICIENT dioxygen gas for complete combustion. We cannot assess the moles of carbon dioxide produced. Carbon, as particulate soot, and carbon monoxide, as the products of INCOMPLETE combustion, would occur in the product mix.

Since we have no idea of the product mix, the question is a bit of a
