When 3.0g of carbon is burnt in 8.00 g of oxygen, 11.00 g of carbon dioxide is produced. What mass of carbon dioxide will be formed when 3.00g of carbon is burnt in 50.00 g of oxygen? Which law of chemical combination will govern your answer?

##### Solution :-

11.00g of carbon dioxide is formed when 3.00g of carbon is burnt in 8.00g of oxygen.

Carbon and oxygen are combined in the ratio 3:8 to give carbon dioxide, using up all the carbon and oxygen

Hence, for 3g of carbon and 50g of oxygen, 8g of oxygen is used and 11g of carbon is formed, the

left oxygen is unused, i.e., 50-3=47g of oxygen is unused.

This depicts the law of definite proportions - The combining elements in compounds are present in definite proportions by mass
