**Answer: 4 people can carry safely for one mission.**

**Explanation: To calculate the number of moles of produces by 1 astronaut, we use the formula:**

….(1)

Molar mass of carbon dioxide = 44 g/mol

Given mass of carbon dioxide =

**Putting values in equation 1, we get:**

**We are given a chemical equation:**

**Moles of LiOH by using equation 1,** we get:

Molar mass of LiOH = 24 g/mol

**By stoichiometry of the reaction,**

2 moles of LiOH produces 1 mole of

So. 1458.3 moles of LiOH will produce = of

**Applying Unitary method:**

As, 200 moles of are produced by 1 astronaut

So, 729.15 moles of will be produced by = astronauts.
