The reaction is carried out in an excess oxygen atmosphere, and 1585 kJ heat is released. Determine the amount of butane consumed.
May use following info:
deltaH C4H10= -124.73 kJ/mol
deltaH H2O= -285.83 kJ/mol
deltaH CO2= -393.5 kJ/mol
deltaH O2= 0 kJ/mol
I am only able to solve the first half of the problem, for deltaH of the whole reaction= -6006.3 kJ/mol, now what??Thanks..© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com September 19, 2018, 3:18 am ad1c9bdddf - https://brainmass.com/chemistry/stoichiometry/determining-amount-chemical-consumed-26552
Number of moles of CO2 formed = 1585/6006.3 = 0.2639 moles
When 8 moles of CO2 are ...
The expert determines the amount of chemicals consumed. The excess oxygen atmosphere is analyzed.
