What volume of O2 (g) is consumed in the combustion of 125g of gaseous dimethyl ether (CH3)2) if both gas volumes are measured at the temperature and pressure at which the density of dimethyl ether is 1.81g/l?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com February 24, 2021, 2:37 pm ad1c9bdddf
Atomic mass of Carbon= 12.01
Atomic mass of Hydrogen= 1.008
Atomic mass of Oxygen= 16
Therefore, Molar mass of dimethyl ether = 46.07g
(as 2 x (12.01+ 3 x 1.008) + 16 = 46.07)
CH3 -O- CH3 (g) + 3O2 ...
Calculates volume of Oxygen consumed in the combustion of gaseous dimethyl ether.
