Question

An organic compound on analysis gave the data : 0.25 g of the compound on complete combustion gave 0.37 g of CO2 and 0.2 g of water.

Solution

Correct option is

40.36%

 

Mass of organic compound = 0.25 g 

Mass of carbon dioxide = 0.37 g 

Mass of water = 0.2 g 

Volume of nitrogen at STP = 32 ml 

Percentage of carbon 

         

         

          = 40.36%.
