How much carbon dioxide is released when 60 g of carbon is burned in a sufficient amount of oxygen?

The reaction of carbon with oxygen occurs in accordance with the following chemical reaction equation:

C + O2 = CO2;

For oxidation of 1 mole of carbon, 1 mole of oxygen is required. This releases 1 mole of carbon dioxide.

Let’s find the amount of carbon.

M C = 12 grams / mol;

N C = 60/12 = 5 mol;

When this amount of carbon is burned, 5 moles of carbon dioxide are released.

Let’s calculate its volume.

One mole of gas under normal conditions fills a volume of 22.4 liters.

The volume of carbon dioxide will be equal to:

V CO2 = 5 x 22.4 = 112 liters;
