The reform reaction between steam and gaseous methane (CH4) produces "synthesis gas," a mixture of carbon monoxide gas and dihydrogen gas. Synthesis gas is one of the most widely used industrial chemicals, and is the major industrial source of hydrogen.
Suppose a chemical engineer studying a new catalyst for the reform reaction finds that 999. liters per second of methane are consumed when the reaction is run at 163. degrees C and 0.79 atm. Calculate the rate at which dihydrogen is being produced. Give your answer in kilograms per second. Be sure your answer has the correct number of significant digits.
