A major component of gasoline is octane


. When liquid octane is burned in air it reacts with oxygen


gas to produce carbon dioxide gas and water vapor. Calculate the moles of oxygen needed to produce


of water. Be sure your answer has a unit symbol, if necessary, and round it to


significant digits.
