Calculate the volume of oxygen needed for complete combustion of ethene. Show your work.

When ethene, C2H4 (g), is completely combusted, carbon dioxide, CO2(g), and water vapor, H2O(g), are produced according to the following balanced equation: 

C2H4 (g) + 3 O2 (g) → 2 CO2 (g) + 2 H2O (g)

If 11.2 L of carbon dioxide gas is produced at STP, answer questions a – c.(Assume that all volume measurements are made at the same temperature and pressure)
