Carbon dioxide has the chemical formula CO2 and each molecule has one atom of carbon and 2 atoms of oxygen. The molar mass of carbon is 12 g/mole and the molar mass of oxygen is 16 g/mole. The molar mass of carbon dioxide is 44 g/mole. The mass of 35.3 moles is 35.3*44 = 1553.2 g

The number of grams of carbon dioxide in a sample that has 35.3 moles of the compound is 1553.2 g
