Problem

Propane, C3H8, is a common fuel used for cooking and home heating. What mass of O2 is consumed in the combustion of 1.00 g of propane?

Solution

In a combustion reaction an organic compound made of carbon and hydrogen or carbon, hydrogen and oxygen is combusted to form carbon dioxide and water as products. 

To calculate the mass of oxygen O2 that was consumed in the combustion of 1.00 g propane, we follow three steps:
