Solution: 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 g

Problem

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)

0.310 mol of octane is allowed to react with 0.870 mol of oxygen.

a. How many moles of water are produced in this reaction?





b. After the reaction, how much octane is left?
