# If 3.75 E 23 molecules of oxygen react, how many molecules of carbon dioxide will be produced?

Precisely the SAME number of carbon dioxide molecules will be produced....under conditions of COMPLETE oxidation....

#### Explanation:

$C \left(s\right) + {O}_{2} \left(g\right) \rightarrow C {O}_{2} \left(g\right)$..
$\text{Moles of dioxygen} = \frac{3.75 \times {10}^{23}}{6.022 \times {10}^{23} \cdot m o {l}^{-} 1} = 0.623 \cdot m o l$. And thus $0.623 \cdot m o l$ of carbon dioxide are evolved. Take that atmosphere!
