The combustion of carbon(II)oxide in oxygen can be…
The combustion of carbon(II)oxide in oxygen can be represented by equation 2CO + O2 = 2CO2. Calculate the volume of the resulting mixture at the end of the reaction if 50cm3 of carbon(II)oxide was exploded in 100cm3 of oxygen
2 volumes of carbon monoxide is required to react with 1 volume of oxygen to produce 2 volumes of carbon dioxide, provided they are all in gaseous state. This also means,
Now for the right answer to the above question:
- Option A is incorrect.
- Option B is correct.
- C is incorrect.
- D is not the correct answer.
You may please note these/this:
- Resulting volume of the mixture must be equal to the volume of the product plus that of the unreacted or excess oxygen, always remember this.
- If there are no excess, the volume of the mixture at the end of reaction is equal to the volume of the product only.
