The complete combustion of octane, C8H18, the main component of gasoline, proceeds as shown below.
2 C8H18(l) + 25 O2(g) → 16 CO2(g) + 18 H2O(l)
(a) How many moles of O2 are needed to burn 1.00 mol of C8H18?
(b) How many grams of O2 are needed to burn 1.75 g of C8H18?
(c) Octane has a density of 0.692 g/mL at 20°C. How many grams of O2 are required to burn 3.35 gal of C8H18?
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
b) 12x8 + 18=114
c) m=density x volume
Could you explain ur answer I dont get how you arrived
first of all you get the ratio of octane to oxygen in the reaction, which is 2:25
using the same ratio, we get the no. of moles of O2 by (1molex25)/2=12.5moles
b) here, we use molar masses, O2=32g/mol , C8H18=12x8+1x18=114g/mol
since carbon=12 and hydrogen=1
...You need to use more precise numbers like 12.01 and 1.01 please
those ones are very precise, 12 and 1 are the rounded off ones, though still leads to almost the same answer value, but instead of 12 and 1 you may insert 12.01 and 1.01 respectively
