## anonymous one year ago In the following reaction, how many grams of benzene (C6H6) will produce 42 grams of CO2? 2C6H6 + 15O2 → 12CO2 + 6H2O The molar mass of benzene is 78.1074 grams and that of CO2 is 44.01 grams.

Step #1 convert grams of CO2 to moles $grams CO _{2}*(\frac{ 1 mol }{ 42g }) = moles CO _{2}$ Step #2 multiply the moles of CO2 by the molar ratio to get the number of moles of C6H6 $Moles CO _{2}*(\frac{ 2C6H6 }{ 12CO2 )}) = moles of Benzene$ Step #3 convert moles of Benzene to grams.
