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)
