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 32kg= 32,000g 32,000g / 384 = 83.33 moles of octane There are 8 times as many moles of carbon dioxide as there is octane so... 83.33 x 8 = 666.4 666.4 moles x 24dm3 per mole = 15,999.36 dm3 occupies Answer: 15,999.36 dm3

G is a colourless crystalline solid which reacts with dilute nitric acid to give a colourless solution, H, and a colourless, odourless gas, I, which turns limewater milky. G has a lilac flame colour. Identify G, H and I (I’m aware that I is CO2)?

If you know that I is CO2, then you can probably already guess which anion it must have come from it in the reaction with the nitric acid.... All yo...

Hi Addie. I hope you are well. Since the 'gas I' can turn the limewater milky, it must be carbon dioxide gas, meaning the crystalline solid is a car...
