Before small batteries were available, carbide lamps were
used for bicycle lights. Acetylene gas, C2H2, and solid calcium hydroxide were
formed by the reaction of calcium carbide, CaC2, with water. The ignition of
the acetylene gas provided the light. Currently, the same lamps are used by
some cavers, and calcium carbide is used to produce acetylene for carbide
cannons. (a) Outline the steps necessary to answer the following question: What
volume of C2H2 at 1.005 atm and 12.2 °C is formed by the reaction of 15.48 g of
CaC2 with water? (b) Answer the question.
