CH4 + O2 -->  CO2 + H2O
What volume of oxygen at 20ºC and 97kPa is needed to react with 3.50 mol of CH4?

2. What volume of CO2 measured at 25ºC and 0.95atm is produced by the combustion of 12.0g of natural gas (C3H8) according to the following UNBALANCED equation?
C3H8 + O2 --> CO2 + H2O

3. Hydrogen sulfide combines with water according to the following UNBALANCED equation:
H2S + H2O --> H2 + SO2
