If 2.0 liters of oxygen gas react with excess carbon monoxide at 273 K and 1.00 atm, how many liters of carbon dioxide can be produced under the same conditions?
2 CO (g) + O2 (g) yields 2 CO2 (g)
1.0 L
2.0 L
4.0 L
6.0 L

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Nope. 2L of \(O_2\) will produce \(twice\) that volume of \(CO_2\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's not a, you did the ratio backwards

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the key here is that you know carbon monoxide is in excess, so essentially o2 is your limiting reagent and you have to use that to figure out how many moles of CO2 are produced. once you do that you can figure out the answer.
