The molar mass of carbon dioxide (CO2) is 44.01 g/mol. The molar mass of water (H2O) is 18.01 g/mol. A reaction uses 528 g of CO2. How many moles of water are used in this reaction?

(1) Answers

The reaction that results from this is: H2O + CO2 --> H2CO3 Stoichiometric ratio between water and CO2 is 1:1. So we can say that for every Mole of CO2, we need 1 Mole of water to produce 1 Mole of H2CO3. Thus as n=m/M we can find n = 528/44.01 = 11.997 ~ 12Mol. therefore, we need 12 moles of water.
