Petrol is predominantly made up of octane (written as C8H18) so...
The equation for the complete combustion of octane is:
2C8H18 + 25O2 ——-> 18H20 + 16CO2
2 Octane molecules + 25 oxygen molecules ———-> 18 water molecules + 16 carbon dioxide molecules.
Octane has a relative formula mass of 384
32,000g / 384 = 83.33 moles of octane
There are 8 times as many moles of carbon... more
