Question

# Sucrose, $\mathrm{C}_{12} \mathrm{H}_{22} \mathrm{O}_{11}$, is a sugar used to sweeten many foods. Inside the body, it is broken down to produce $\mathrm{H}_{2} \mathrm{O}$ and $\mathrm{CO}_{2}.$$\mathrm{C}_{12} \mathrm{H}_{22} \mathrm{O}_{11}+12 \mathrm{O}_{2} \longrightarrow 12 \mathrm{CO}_{2}+11 \mathrm{H}_{2} \mathrm{O}$List all of the mole ratios that can be determined from this equation.

Solution

Verified
Step 1
1 of 5

The decomposition of the sucrose is

$\mathrm{C}_{12} \mathrm{H}_{22} \mathrm{O}_{11}+12 \mathrm{O}_{2} \longrightarrow 12 \mathrm{CO}_{2}+11 \mathrm{H}_{2} \mathrm{O}$

The number before the molecule is the number of moles. Below, we list the number of moles for each molecule

Molecule no. of moles
$\mathrm{C}_{12} \mathrm{H}_{22} \mathrm{O}_{11}$ 1
$\mathrm{O}_{2}$ 12
$\mathrm{CO}_{2}$ 12
$\mathrm{H}_{2} \mathrm{O}$ 11
