c any 4 of:
volume of gas proportional to number
of moles;
mole ratio is 50:300:200
1mol hydrocarbon:6mol oxygen:4mol
carbon dioxide
Since 4 moles of carbon dioxide from
1 mole of hydrocarbon, hydrocarbon has
4 carbon atoms
4 carbon atoms will react with 4 moles of
oxygen molecules, leaving 2 moles of oxygen
molecules (4 moles of oxygen atoms) to react
with the hydrogen
so 4 moles of water formed, meaning
8 hydrogen atoms in hydrocarbon
equation is C4H8+6O2 4CO2+4H2O
