Problem

Baggage handlers at airports routinely screen luggage for the presence of nitroglycerin, C3H5(NO3)3 (Molar mass = 227.11 g). Nitroglycerin is a highly explosive compound and decomposes according to the following equation:

4 C3H5(NO3)3(s)  → 12 CO2 (g) + 10 H2O (g) + 6 N2 (g) + O2 (g)

Calculate the total volume of CO 2 gas collected at 1.2 atm and 27.0 oC from 42.5 grams of nitroglycerin.

a. 12.6 L

b. 0.346 L

c. 1.04 L

d. 3.84 L

e. 11.5 L
