An automobile gasoline tank holds 42 kg of gasoline. When the gasoline burns, 168 kg of oxygen are consumed and carbon dioxide and water are produced. What total combined mass of carbon dioxide and water is produced?
Solution 45P :
Given : mass of gasoline = 42 kg.
Mass of oxygen consumed = 168 kg.
Total combined mass of carbon dioxide and water produced = ?
So, the reaction happening here is :
42 kg of gasoline + 168 kg of oxygen → Carbon dioxide + water
