We’re asked to find how many moles of CO can be obtained starting with 6 mol CH4 for the given reaction based on the diagram.
To do so, we need to write a balanced chemical equation from the diagram.
The flow of the solution will be like this:
moles CH4 (mole-mole-comparison) → moles CO
First, we need to determine the reactants and products based on the diagram:
The diagram represents a high-temperature reaction between CH4 and H2O.
Based on this reaction, find how many moles of CO can be obtained starting with 6 mol CH4?
