If #11# grams of carbon dioxide is produced, how much methane, #"CH"_4#, must have reacted initially in moles?
#"CH"_4(g) + 2"O"_2(g) -> "CO"_2(g) + 2"H"_2"O"(l)#
From the balanced equation determine the ratio of moles of carbon dioxide produced to methane reacted, then from the molar mass of carbon dioxide get the moles of carbon dioxide and multiply by the methane to
The balanced equation shows that
Calculating the molar mass of
The answer has to be
Methane undergoes a combustion reaction as follow:
According to the balanced equation,
