Liquid octane (CH3CH26CH3) reacts with gaseous oxygen gas (O2) to produce gaseous carbon dioxide (CO2) and gaseous water (H2O). If 2.24g of water is produced from the reaction of 8.00g of octane and 12.3g of oxygen gas, calculate the percent yield of water. Be sure your answer has the correct number of significant digits in it.
