10.Certain race cars use methanol (CH3OH; also called wood alcohol) as a fuel. Methanol has a molecular mass of 32.0 g/mol and a density of 0.79 g/mL. The combustion of methanol occurs according to the following equation:2CH3OH + 3O22CO2+ 4HIn a particular reaction 2.00 L of methanol are reacted with 80.0 kg of oxygen.Mass= density*vol .79*2000= 1580 gCH3OH=32 molar mass1580/32= 49.37 moles of CH3OH 80.0 kg= 80000 grams80000/32 = 2500 moles of O22:3 ratio= 2500(2/3)= 1666. 67 moles of methanol a.What is the limiting reactant?
