Percent Yield of Carbon Dioxide?
Liquid octane CH3CH26CH3 reacts with gaseous oxygen gas O2 to produce gaseous carbon dioxide CO2
and gaseous water H2O. If 46.1g of carbon dioxide is produced from the reaction of 63.97g of octane and 145.6g of oxygen gas, calculate the percent yield of carbon dioxide.
Be sure your answer has the correct number of significant digits in it.
I originally tried to do this question alone but I'm continuously getting the incorrect answer. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, it would be helpful to see the process.
