A gallon of gasoline (mostly octane) weighs 6.3 lbs at rm temp. Assuming this mass of gas is completely combusted, how many lbs of O2 are consumed in the process?

C8H18+12.5O2= 8CO2+9H2O

Carbon =12

Hydrogen =1

C8H18= 12*8+18*1 =114

Oxygen = 16

12.5O2  =400

The mass of oxygen = 6.3/114 *400 =0.0552*400 =22.1 lbs
