Suppose 16.04 g of benzene, C6H6, is burned in oxygen.(a) What are the products of the reaction?(b) Write a balanced equation for the reaction.(c) What mass of O1, in grams, is required for complete combustion of benzene?(d) What is the total mass of products expected from the combustion of 16.04 g of benzene?

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The products of the reaction of burning of benzene in oxygen has to be written.

Explanation

Product of a chemical reaction is the produced compounds or the compounds formed after a chemical reaction.

Here the combustion of benzene is carried out in the presence of oxygen.

The reaction will lead to the formation of two products namely ...

(b)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Balanced chemical equation for reaction of burning of benzene in oxygen has to be written.

Concept Introduction:

• For chemical reaction balanced chemical equation is written in accordance with the Law of conservation of mass.
• Law of conservation of mass states that for a reaction total mass of the reactant and product must be equal.

(c)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The mass of oxygen required to complete the combustion of 16.04g of C6H6 has to be determined.

Concept Introduction:

• The molar mass of an element or compound is the mass in grams of 1 mole of that substance, and it is expressed in the unit of grams per mol (g/mol).
• Stoichiometric factor is a relationship between reactant and product which is obtained from the balanced chemical equation for a particular reaction.

(d)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The total mass of products formed in the reaction has to be determined.

Concept Introduction:

• The molar mass of an element or compound is the mass in grams of 1 mole of that substance, and it is expressed in the unit of grams per mol (g/mol).
• Stoichiometric factor is a relationship between reactant and product which is obtained from the balanced chemical equation for a particular reaction.
