Problem Details

Under certain circumstances, carbon dioxide, CO(g) can be made to react with hydrogen gas, H2 (g) to produce methane, CH4 (g) and water vapour H2O (g).

CO2 (g) + 4H2 (g) → CH4 (g) + 2H2O (g) 

Part A

How many moles of methane are produced when 36.6 moles of carbon dioxide gas react with excess hydrogen gas.

Part B

How many moles of hydrogen gas would be needed to react with excess carbon dioxide to produce 30.6 moles of water.

Express ye answer with the appropriate units.
