Chemistry Stoichiometry Solution: Coal power plants burn large amounts of coal, C(s)...

🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Dransfield's class at NEU.

Solution: Coal power plants burn large amounts of coal, C(s), in an O2(g) atmosphere to generate electricity. The chemical reaction responsible for producing this energy is shown below: C(s) + O2(g) → CO2(g) Determine the volume of cop in liters produced when 100 metric ton of C(s) is completely burned in an O2 atmosphere. The density of CO2 is 1.98 kg/m3 (1 metric ton = 1000 kg; 1 m3 = 1000 L)

Problem

Coal power plants burn large amounts of coal, C(s), in an O2(g) atmosphere to generate electricity. The chemical reaction responsible for producing this energy is shown below: 

C(s) + O2(g) → CO2(g) 

Determine the volume of cop in liters produced when 100 metric ton of C(s) is completely burned in an O2 atmosphere. The density of CO2 is 1.98 kg/m3 (1 metric ton = 1000 kg; 1 m= 1000 L)
