# Problem: Hydrogen cyanide is prepared commercially by the reaction of methane, CH4(g), ammonia, NH3(g), and oxygen, O2(g), at high temperature. The other product is gaseous water.b. What volume of HCN(g) can be obtained from the reaction of 20.0 L CH4(g), 20.0 L NH3(g), and 20.0 L O2(g)? The volumes of all gases are measured at the same temperature and pressure.
