The combustion reactions of ethene and ethin
« on: March 26, 2020, 07:34:44 AM »
The combustion reactions of ethene and ethin are given:
C2H4 + 302 = 2CO2 +2 H20       
H= -6787Kj

 2 C2H2 +5 02 = 4CO2 +2 H20 
H= -2599 Kj


 Find how much mole of ethene and ethin the mixture with mass= 218gram has If from combustion of this mixture were released 10955.5 Kj.

I have a test and this is the only problem I can not understand because my teacher hasn't explained (coronavirus). Sorry for the bad translation. Thanks in advance.

It is a forum rule that you must show your attempt before we can help you.  Perhaps you could start by writing an equation involving the masses of ethene and ethyne.

I think I solved it But i am not sure.   I got  n¹=6.4 mole  and n²=1.46

It's easy to check.

Look at the numbers. 218/26 (acetylene) ~ 8.5.
This amount during combustion gives more than 10,000 KJ.
This means you have about 8 moles of C2H2 and nearly traces of C2H4.

Why 26? There is  2C2H2 so it should be 52.

how did you calculate the moles of ethene and ethyne... (note the spelling)?

C2H4 + 3 02  :rarrow: 2 CO2 + 2 H20  ΔH= -6787 kJ

2 C2H2 + 5 02  :rarrow: 4 CO2 + 2 H20  ΔH= -2599 kJ

I can't believe two acetylenes produce less heat than one ethylene. Check the figures.

The heat of combustion of acetylene (for 2 moles) is correct. This heat of ethylene combustion is wrong.

A = mole of ethylene
B = mole of ethyne

A(6787Kj) + B(2599) = 10955.5Kj
A(28) + B(52) = 218 g

The heat of combustion of 1 mol ethylene is 1411 kJ/mol
The molecular mass of acetylene is 26

Ok sir. Even hough 2C2H2 still 26 g/mol
