What volume of oxygen would be required for complete combustion of 100 litres of ethane according to the following equation?
2C2H6 + 7O2 4CO2 + 6H2O
Number of moles of ethane in 100 L =
According to the balanced chemical equation, two moles of ethane require seven moles of oxygen for complete combustion.
Moles of oxygen required by 4.46 moles of ethane =
Volume of oxygen required = Number of moles Molar volume = (22.4)
