Step 1

Given,
4.65 g of butane mixed with 25.0 g of oxygen. help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseThe balancing equation for the combustion reaction is given below 13 0, (g)4CO, (g)+5H2Og) 2 C,H1 g)+ According to the balancing equation, one mole of butane reaction with 13/2 moles of oxygen gives four moles of carbon dioxide Moles of butane is calculated as follows Mass Moles 11 Molar mass 4.65g 58.12 g/mol Moles Moles 0.0800 mole fullscreen
Step 2

The required O2 is 0.52 mole, but according to the given reaction moles of oxygen is 0.7813 moles.
