Question

When 3.0 g of carbon is burnt in 8.00 g oxygen, 11.00 g of carbon dioxide is produced. What mass of carbon dioxide will be formed when 3.00 g of carbon is burnt in 50.00 g of oxygen? Which law of chemical combinations will govern your answer?

Solution

Carbon + Oxygen  Carbon dioxide

3 g of carbon reacts with 8 g of oxygen to produce 11 g of carbon dioxide.

If 3 g of carbon is burnt in 50 g of oxygen, then 3 g of carbon will react with 8 g of oxygen. The remaining 42 g of oxygen will be left un-reactive.

In this case also, only 11 g of carbon dioxide will be formed.

The above answer is governed by the law of constant proportions.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
