The products of complete combustion of ethanol, C2H5OH, are shown in the unbalanced equation:

C2H5OH (l) + O2 (g) ----> CO2 (g) + H2O (l) 
 
This reaction has a CO2 percent yield of 62.3%
 
What will be the mass of CO2 EXPERIMENTALLY obtained when 44.5g O2 and 24.6g C2H5OH are reacted? 
 
Molar masses: C2H5OH = 46.07 g/mol; O2= 32.00 g/mol; CO2= 44.01 g/mol; H2O= 18.016 g/mol
