b) What is the equivalence ratio of the reactant mixture given in the problem statement?

Answer:

According to the reaction:

2C2H2(g) + 5O2(g) → 4CO2(g) + 2H2O(l)

 1 mol         2.5 mol        2 mol         1 mol

Thus, for the complete combustion of 1 liter of acetylene necessary 2.5 liters of oxygen.
