  1. Non-Student
1) write a balanced equation:

C6H12O6 + 6O2 --------> 6 H2O + 6CO2
(1 mol) (6 mol) (6 mol) (6 mol)

20g C6H12O6 (glucose)

2) convert substance being combusted into moles

C6H12O6 : Molecular weight = 180 g/mol

So, 20g/180g/mol = 1/9 mol of glucose

1 mol C6H12O6 : 6 mol H2O
1/9 mol C6H12O6 : X mol H2O


x = 6/9 = 2/3 mol H2O

So, the correct answer is A

Thanks for your help. I purchased these cd's from someone on ebay. He put it together for DAT prep but I found some mistakes. I just wanted to make sure since CG isn't my strong point.
