If 5.563 grams of #CH_4# reacted with 25.00 grams of oxygen, how much #CO_2# , in grams, can be produced? #CH_4(g) + 2O2(g) -> CO_2(g) + 2H_2O(g)#?
Approx. thirty grams.
Clearly there is sufficient dioxygen to react with methane as per the stoichiometric equation:
which requires 2 equiv dioxygen per equiv of methane. So we get 1 equiv of carbon dioxide, which has a mass of
