If the tube was normal size, and you ran over something sharp, it might go Psssssssssss.
With a tube that small, it would go........BANG.

. . . BTW, are you sure that the tube doesn't list a range of tire sizes rather than just one?
It may have on the box but the box was long gone.

When I bought the bike a few months ago and told'em I'd like to have an extra tube that was what they handed me. Didn't notice that it was a smaller size until I was changing it.

It would probably work if you have to use it now, but tubes are cheap enough so you might as well get the correct size. In fact get a few extras as you will probably get flats from time to time. Also you should carry a spare with you on any decent length ride.
