The mass of carbon monoxide mass of hydrogen required to produce 6.0 kg of methanol by the reaction should be calculated. Concept Introduction: The balanced chemical reaction of carbon monoxide and hydrogen to give methanol is as follows: CO ( g ) + 2 H 2 ( g ) → CH 3 OH ( l ) The mass of carbon monoxide and hydrogen gas required can be calculated from their number of moles which can be calculated from number of moles of methanol.
