3.1.0 Stoichiometric CaLcuLations: Amounts of Reactants and Products 103 This equation means that 1 mole of C 3 Hg reacts with 5 moles of O 2 to produce 3 moles of CO 2 and 4 moles of H 2 0. To use this equation to find the masses of reactants and prod- ucts, we must be able to convert between masses and moles of substances. Thus we must first ask: "How many moles of propane are present in 96.1 grams of propane?" The molar mass of propane to three significant figures is 44.1 (that is, 3 X 12.01 + 8 X 1.008). The moles of propane can be calculated as follows: 1 mol C 3 Hg 96.1 g...GjHg X = 2.18 mol C 3 Hg 44.1 g...GjHg High Mountains-Low Octane The next time that you visit a gas station, take a moment to note the octane rating that ac- companies the grade of gasoline that you are purchasing. The gasoline is priced according to its octane rating-a mea- sure of the fuel's antiknock properties. In a conventional in- ternal combustion engine, gasoline vapors and air are drawn into the combustion cylinder on the downward stroke of the piston. This air-fuel

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
