Mass changes during catechol combustion

Data before combustion:
NaOH = 34.085g
P2O5 = 38.293g
catechol = 05.000g

Data after combustion:
NaOH = 46.075g
P2O5 = 40.747g

I need help finding:
mass of H2O
mass of CO2
moles of H2O
moles of CO2
moles of H atoms
moles of C atoms
mass of H
mass of C

Solution Summary

Step-by-step calculation for determining masses and moles (H2O, CO2, C, H), pertained to catechol combustion.
