# 1.4    Calculate the amount of carbon dioxide that could be produced when                (iii) 2 moles of carbon are burnt in 16 g of dioxygen.

D Divya Prakash Singh

When 2 moles of carbon is burnt in 16 g of dioxygen:

The chemical equation for this reaction is:

$C_{(s)}+O_{2(g)} \rightarrow CO_{2(g)}$

Here, oxygen acts as a limiting reagent as only 16g of dioxygen is available.

Thus, 16g of dioxygen will react with 0.5 mole of carbon to give 22g of carbon dioxide.
