Stuck!
« on: May 05, 2020, 05:48:02 AM »
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.

This is the simplest stoichiometry of reaction. Read your textbook.

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.

You could try finding the moles of nonane first.
