    Hello,
    Could anyone please help me with calculating the volume rating of hydrogen peroxide.
    I know that the equation of hydrogen peroxide is
    2H2O (aq) ---> 2H2O (l) + O2 (g)
    2 moles of hydrogen peroxide produces 1 mole of oxygen
    (''20 volume'' means 1 cm3 of peroxide solution produces 20cm3 oxygen)

    the question is:
    you have 5cm3 of H2O2 and a total of 200 cm3 of O2 is made, what is the volume rating of the hydrogen peroxide?

    Thank you

    40? I may be wrong, but if 5 cm3 makes 200, then 1 will make 40
