(a) produces the greatest amount of products. It produces 2 $CO_2$ molecules.
1. Count the amount of each reactant in each diagram: a. 3 $CH_3OH$ and 3 $O_2$ b. 1 $CH_3OH$ and 6 $O_2$ c. 4 $CH_3OH$ and 2 $O_2$ 2. Determine the amount of $CO_2$ each diagram will produce. a. 3 $CH_3OH$ produce 3 $CO_2$, and3 $O_2$ produce 2 $CO_2$. Therefore, this mixture will produce 2 $CO_2$. b. 1 $CH_3OH$ produces 1 $CO_2$, and 6 $O_2$ produce 4 $CO_2$. Therefore, this mixture will produce 1 $CO_2$. c. 4 $CH_3OH$ produce 4 $CO_2$, and 2 $O_2$ produce 0.7 $CO_2$. Therefore, this mixture will produce 0.7 $CO_2$. 3. The one that produces the greatest amount of products is (a).
