`        the vapour density of a hydrocarbon is 30.If on complete combustion of hydrocarbon,8.8 g CO2 and 5.4 g H2O are obtained then molecular formula of hydrocarbon is                  1)C3H8 2)C4H12 3)C2H6 4)C2H4`

```							Reaction = CxHy + (x + y/4)O2 = xCO2 + y/2 H2O now 8.8 gm CO2 means 8.8/44 moles=0.2 moles 5.4 gm H2O means 5.4/18 moles = 0.3 moles For 1 mole hydrocarbon there is x moles of CO2 so for 0.2 moles of CO2 = 0.2/x moles of hydrocarbon For 1 mole  hydrocarbon there is y/2 mole of H2O so for 0.3 moles of H2O = 0.6/y moles of hydrocarbon So now 0.2/x = 0.6/y    it means y=3x..............eq . 1And molecular weight = 2 × vapour density So 12x+ y = 2 × 30 12x + y = 60..............eq 2By solving eq 1 and 2 we get x=4  and  y = 12 So hydrocarbon is C4H12
