20cm3 of hydrocarbon needed 90cm3 of oxygen for complete combustion. 60cm3 is CO2 was produced. All volumes were measured at rtp and pressure. Find the formula of the hydrocarbon.

i don't know how to work out the formula
All hydrocarbons contain only hydrogen and carbon.
When burned completely all hydrogen forms water and all carbon forms carbon dioxide.
Avogadro's law says that the gas volume is directly proportional to the number of moles.

It gives you all of the information that you need to work the answer out for yourself.

All hydrocarbons contain only hydrogen and carbon. - therefore the formula is CxHy
When burned completely all hydrogen forms water and all carbon forms carbon dioxide. Cx ===> xCO2 ; Hy ===> y/2H2O
Avogadro's law says that the gas volume is directly proportional to the number of moles. You can use the gas volumes as if they are moles to get the ratio of moles of each component.
