Hi! I'm stuck on this question if anyone could explain the answer please!

The equation for burning nonane is as follows.
C9H20 + 14O2 → 9CO2 + 10H2O
Calculate the mass of water produced when 6·4 grams of nonane is burned.

You should recall that you can extrapolate the amount of substance (n) of each compound from a reaction scheme. Do we have a formula that correlates amount of substance to mass?

Consider the relationship between nonane and water in the reaction: how much water is created per nonane?

I hope you can figure it out using this.
