how many moles of methane are required to produce 22g of CO2 after combustion

Expert Answer:

CH+ 2O2 -> CO2 + 2H2O

GRAM MOLECULAR MASS OF CO= 12 +2(16) = 44g

From the reaction it is clear that 1 mole of methane on complete combustion produces 44g (1 mole) of carbon dioxide.

therefore moles of CHrequired to produce 22g of CO2 are:

(22) * (1/44) = 1/2 moles
