Water, H2O, is made via its formation reaction. How many moles of water form when (7.69x10^0) moles of oxygen gas react? (Answer in mol to 3 s.d. in proper scientific notation)

yet again, i have no idea what im doing

Answer:

The given amount of oxygen gas will produce #1.54xx10^1# mol water.

Explanation:

Start with a balanced equation. It will be used to determine mol ratios between the product and the reactant.

#"2H"_2 + "O"_2##rarr##"2H"_2"O"#

Multiply the given mol oxygen gas by the mol ratio #(2"mol H"_2"O")/(1"mol O"_2")# from the balanced equation.
