## Question:

Ethane{eq}\ \text{(C}_2\text{H}_6) {/eq}, reacts with oxygen gas and creates carbon dioxide gas and liquid water, if 2.5ml of water was produced, how much ethane gas was combusted? (density of ethane is 0.00124g/ml).

## Structure of Ethane:

Ethane is a saturated hydrocarbon that contains two C and six H atoms. Each C atom in ethane is {eq}sp^3 {/eq} hybridized. Hence, each carbon atom in ethane contained three C-H bonds and one C-C bond.

The balanced chemical reaction is given as:

{eq}2C_{2}H_{6}+7O_{2}\rightarrow 4CO_2+6H_2O {/eq}

The density {eq}(d) {/eq} of water is 1...
