Question 2
According to your textbook, the bond energies for a C=0 bond and an O=0 bond are 803 and 498 kJ per mole, respectively. Double-check the table to make sure that
these values are correct.
Based on those values for bond energies, calculate the energy released in this reaction. Your answer should have units of kJ per mole of CO2 formed.
C + O2    ---> CO2

Question 3
Your text says that reformulated gasolines produce lower levels of CO when they are burned. Why does this happen?

Question 4
