Problem 2.24

Consider 80.0-g samples of two different compounds consisting of only carbon and oxygen. One of the compounds consists of 21.8 g of carbon, and the other has 34.3 g of carbon. Determine the ratio in whole numbers of the masses of carbon that combine with 1.00 g of oxygen between the two compounds.

Step by Step Solution

Step 1 of 2

Compound -1:

From the given,

Total mass of both compounds = 80.0 g

The mass of carbon = 21.8 g

The mass of carbon that combines with one gram of oxygen.

Let’s calculate the mass of carbon per one gram of oxygen.

Compound -2:

From the given,

Total mass of both compounds = 80.0 g

The mass of carbon = 34.3 g

The mass of carbon that combines with one gram of oxygen.

Let’s calculate the mass of carbon per one gram of oxygen.
