Question:

According to reaction below, if 4.95 g of ethylene (C2H4) are combusted oxygen,

C2H4 +3O2 {eq}\rightarrow {/eq} 2CO2 + 2H2O

How many liters of CO2 gas are produced?

Stoichiometry

Stoichiometry is the quantitative relationship between chemicals in a reaction. The balanced equation shows the molar ratio between the chemicals and can be used as a conversion factor to relate the amount of one to another.
