Asked by Sarah

Calculate the atom economy for making hydrogen from Methane and steam CH4 + 2H20 —> CO2 + 4H2?

The formulae is as follows: % of atom economy = (mass of the atoms in the product(s) we want)/(mass of all the atoms in the products (or reactants)) *100% Solution: % atom economy = (4 x 2)/((12 + 16 + 16) + (4 x 2))*100% Final Answer= 15.4%
