Given the following reaction, what volume of oxygen would be needed to react with 250. grams of propane at 551 °C and 0.976 atm?
C3H8 (g) + 5 O2 (g) -> 3 CO2 (g) + 4 H2O (g)

Step 1

As we know, 1 mole of propane requires = 5 moles O2

The molecular mass of propane (C3H8) = 44 g

So, 44 g propane requires = 160 g of O2

Then, 250 g of propane requires,

Step 2

So, 909 g of O2 has a volume of,

Step 3

Given, P = 0.976 atm, T = 824 K, V = ?
