Topic #4A: Stoichiometry and Percent Yield

Practice Problems:

1.      Balance the following chemical equation:      __ CH3OH(g) + __ O2(g)  __ CO2(g) + __ H2O(l)

For each row of the following table fill in the missing masses.
i.e. For row 1, if 32.0 g of CH3OH reacted, how much O2 must have reacted? ......how much CO2
was produced? .......how much H2O was produced?
