Butane gas, C 4 H 10 , is sold to campers as bottled fuel. Its density at 25°C and 1.00 atm is 2.38 g/L. What volume of butane gas at 25°C and 1.00 atm is required to heat one gallon of water ( d = 1.00 g / mL ) from 25°C to 98°C ? The reaction for the combustion of butane ( Δ H f ° = − 125.6 kJ / mol ) is C 4 H 1 0 ( g ) + 13 2 O 2 ( g ) → 4CO 2 ( g ) + 5H 2 O ( g )
