Expert's answer

1. To calculate the mass of carbon we'll use the following equation:

CO

2. Molecular weight of CO

3.

143 k x kg

CO

44 12

x = 143*12/44 = 39

ANSWER: 39 kg

CO

_{2}----> C + O_{2}2. Molecular weight of CO

_{2}is 44 and for C it is 123.

143 k x kg

CO

_{2}----> C + O_{2}44 12

x = 143*12/44 = 39

ANSWER: 39 kg
