Problem 88

If 1.5 mol C2H5OH, 1.5 mol C3H8, and 1.5 mol CH3CH2COCH3 are completely combusted oxygen, which produces the largest number of moles of H20? Which produces the least? Explain.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution When the compound undergoes combustion ,the products formed are CO2(g) and H2O(l). Combustion (or burning) is a chemical process in which fuel reacts with an oxidant to produce heat. The release of heat can produce light in the form of flame. A car engine and a rocket engine both work by combustion. Combustion in a car motor is different from combustion in a rocket engine. Car combustion is gas catching on fire and exploding in cylinders again and again to push them up and down, making the car move. Rocket combustion is made by rocket fuel exploding out of the back of the rocket moving it up. The burning of most substances is bad for the environment and the ozone layer because it can let off greenhouse gases such as Carbon dioxide. Hydrogen burns cleanly and gives off a lot of heat, but it does not produce much power, and is hard to find. Fuel reacts with oxygen and release energy. Complete combustion happens in a plentiful supply...
