Since the start of the industrial era, the partial pressure of carbon dioxide at sea level (where total atmospheric pressure is 1 atm) has increased by 0.2066 mmHg. Human-produced (anthropogenic) carbon dioxide predominantly comes from burning fossil fuels. For our purposes, we can approximate all carbohydrates as octane, C8H10 (l). Assume the following about the atmosphere: the volume is 6.13 x 1021 liters, the average temperature is 249.25 K, and the average pressure is 0.509931 atm. Calculate the net moles of octane burned (combusted) to account for increase in atmospheric CO2.
