Problem: How many moles of water are produced in this reaction?The octane rating of gasoline is a relationship of the burning efficiency of the given gasoline mixture to the burning efficiency of octane (C8H18). Like most hydrocarbons, octane reacts with oxygen gas to produce carbon dioxide and water. The unbalanced equation for this reaction isC8H18(g) + O2(g) → CO2(g) + H2O(g)

How many moles of water are produced in this reaction?

The octane rating of gasoline is a relationship of the burning efficiency of the given gasoline mixture to the burning efficiency of octane (C8H18). Like most hydrocarbons, octane reacts with oxygen gas to produce carbon dioxide and water. The unbalanced equation for this reaction is
C8H18(g) + O2(g) → CO2(g) + H2O(g)
