Question #6501

determine the mass of carbon (in kilograms) contained in 143 kilograms of CO2.
please show steps

Expert's answer

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

CO_{2} ----> C + O_{2}

2. Molecular weight of CO_{2} is 44 and for C it is 12

3.

143 k x kg

CO_{2} ----> C + O_{2}

44 12

x = 143*12/44 = 39

ANSWER: 39 kg

CO

2. Molecular weight of CO

3.

143 k x kg

CO

44 12

x = 143*12/44 = 39

ANSWER: 39 kg
