Question

Liquid hexane

CH3CH24CH3

reacts with gaseous oxygen gas

O2

to produce gaseous carbon dioxide

CO2

and gaseous water

H2O

. If

1.76g

of water is produced from the reaction of

1.72g

of hexane and

11.7g

of oxygen gas, calculate the percent yield of water.

Be sure your answer has the correct number of significant digits in it.

The balanced equation is given below
2CCH1419212CO2+14H20
Two molecules of hexane reaction with nineteen molecule of oxygen gives twelve molecule of
carbon dioxide and fourteen molecules of water
The reaction shows that 1:7 mole ratio between hexane and water. One mole of hexane produces
seven moles of water
1 mole hexane
7 moles water
18.0 g
