One way to make coal burning better for the environment is to remove carbon dioxide from the exhaust gases released from power plants using a compound containing an amine (-NH2) group. The reaction between carbon dioxide and monoethanolamine is:
CO2(g) + 2 HOCH2CH2NH2(aq) -> HOCH2CH2NH3 +(aq) + HOCH2CH2NHCO2-(aq)
What mass of monoethanoloamine is required to react with 1.0 kg of carbon dioxide? (LO 3.5)
(a) 2.8 kg
(b) 1.1 kg
(c) 0.93 kg
(d) 0.53 kg
