Solving for rates

Postby 205192823 » Sun Mar 15, 2020 7:26 am

How do I solve this problem?
Ethene is a component of natural gas, and its combustion has been thoroughly studied. At a certain temperature and pres-sure, the unique rate of the combustion reaction
C2H4(g) + 3 O2(g) --> 2 CO2(g) + 2 H2O(g) is 0.44 mol? L21?s21.
(a) What is the rate at which oxygen reacts?
(b) What is the rate of formation of water?

If I'm thinking of the same problem, it seems to be asking about the rate of disappearance of oxygen. In that case you would multiply the rate given by the ratio of oxygen shown in the reaction.

The molar ratio, right?
