Balanced reaction: 2 C2H6(g) + 7 O2(g) → 4 CO2(g) + 6 H2O(l)
Given: 5.85 mol of ethane (C2H6)
from the balanced reaction: 2 moles of ethane produces 4 moles of CO2
The combustion of ethane (C2H6) produces carbon dioxide and steam:
2C2H6(g) + 7O2(g) → 4CO2(g) + 6H2O(l)
How many moles of CO2 are produced when 5.85 mol of ethane are burned in an excess of oxygen?
