Problem 6

The following diagram represents a high-temperature reaction between $\mathrm{CH}_{4}$ and $\mathrm{H}_{2} \mathrm{O}$ . Based on this reaction, find how many moles of each product can be obtained starting with 4.0 $\mathrm{mol} \mathrm{CH}_{4} .[$ Section 3.6$]$

So to answer this question first you have to write down the balanced equation for the reaction going on between Say it for you and H Tool. So sage for an H two will react to give us carbon monoxide CEO and the hydrogen gas. So now if we balanced this relation, we will see that there's balance our carbon first. Since we don't have any metal here. So you have one car, one on its side. Then we'LL balance or I'd risen. We have four plus two total. Six had risen in the reactor in sight. That means we need six had risen in the product side and there so you will multiply. This had risen by three get six high treason on the product sign. Now we have one carbon on its site and we have six hundred thousand in its sign. They have to find out our oxygen number. We have one oxygen on its side. That means you don't need to balance the number of oxygen's. So this is our balanced abrasion in question. So from here you can see that one matloff ch four will reactivate one mole off H tour to produce one matloff carbon monoxide and trim all off prison. Now, if you look at the diagram, you can see that So for American easily see, this's our CH four molecules Here. The black one is the central carbon and we have four hydrogen. And as to this and here, you can see that this is our age to Monica, where the red ball here is the oxygen on that as to who had risen forming a band structure. So here we are reacting to search for well, who is tour and we're producing. So this fight spheres are hydrogen molecules. Since this Whiteside risen. And this's our carbon monoxide where the red one is the carbon on the raid on his oxygen and the black one is the carbon. So here we're having to carbon monoxide. And one, two, three, four, five, six um, headdress. And guess so that's actually match It are Ah, the man is formula. We got here safe. We multiply, decide by two The Book of the whole Nation by Wei will have our two seats for you to meet. Two is to reform school government aside and two times three to get six hundred and Monaco so that's what The Bagram Sese. Now, if if we start reactionary formal offstage for that means if we have our formal instead ofthe one, that means how many moles off the product will get formal offices for lately formal official tour to give us with a separate Multiply all these by for that miss four times one and four times three. And this will give us four times one means formal off seal and four times three mints Jeweled matloff, hydrogen gas. So if we start the reactionary formal offstage for it will give us formal off feel and it will give us tools. Matloff, it doesn't guess.
