An unknown hydrocarbon A completely combusts in oxygen to produce just water and carbon dioxide.
Given that four moles of carbon dioxide and four moles of water are produced during the combustion of 1 mole of A suggest the chemical formula of hydrocarbon A.

1 mol of your unknown contains enough carbon atoms to make 4 mol of CO2 and enough H atoms to make 4 mol of H2O.

Your unknown is CxHy (it is a hydrocarbon after all), what are the value of x and y?
