(A) Balanced Equation:

2 C2H2 + 5 O2 → 4 CO+ 2 H2O

(B) How many grams of water can be formed from the consumption of 8.98 grams of acetylene

Molar mass H2O = 18.02 g/mol

Molar mass C2H2 = 26.04  g/mol

= 6.21 g H2O

(C) How many grams of water can be formed from the consumption of 4.58 grams of oxygen

Molar mass H2O = 18.02 g/mol

Molar mass O2 = 16.00  g/mol

= 2.06 g H2O
