Aluminium carbide reacts with water according to the following equation :
`Al_4C_3 + 12H_2O-> 4Al(OH)_3 + 3CH_4`
1)What mass of aluminium hydroxide is formed from 12g of aluminium carbide?
2) What volume of methane at s.t.p. is obtained from 12g of aluminium carbide?
[Relatively molecular weight of `Al_4Cl_3 = 144; Al(OH)_3 = 78]`
