Gaseous methane

CH4

will react with gaseous oxygen

O2

to produce gaseous carbon dioxide

CO2

and gaseous water

H2O

. Suppose 0.963 g of methane is mixed with 2.0 g of oxygen. Calculate the maximum mass of carbon dioxide that could be produced by the chemical reaction. Be sure your answer has the correct number of significant digit

Step 1

The given balanced reaction as follows,

Step 2

1 mole of methane requires 2 moles of O2

0.060 moles of ethane requires ‘x’ mole of O2

Then, the moles of O2 is calculated as,

Step 3

Hence, the limiting reagent is O2.

2 mole of O2 produces 1 moles of CO2

0.0625 moles of O2 produces ‘x’ mole...
