How many grams of co2 does this reaction produce

Natural gas is primarily methane, CH4, and is used to heat homes. A typical home is approximately 2000 ft2 and the ceilings are 8 ft high. The following data may be helpful: The heat capacity of air is 1.01 J/g·K and the and the enthalpy of combustion of methane is -890.8 kJ/mol. Assume that the molecular weight of air is the same as nitrogen, its major component.

  1. How many grams of methane are required to raise the temperature in the home from 37°F to 65°F?
  2. How many grams of CO2 does this reaction produce?
