Ethane is C2H6 and combustion of ethane is 2C2H6 + 7O2 ==> 4CO2 + 6H2OThus for combustion of 2 moles of ethane, one requires 7 moles O2

The mass of O2 required thus is 7 moles O2 x 32 g/mole O2 = 224 g of O2 needed

What is ethane plus oxygen?

That would be combustion with the products being carbon dioxide and water (assuming complete combustion) and a release of energy.

What is the word equation for the combustion of ethane?

ethane + Oxygen --> Carbon dioxide + Water

How many moles of oxygen are required for the complete combustion of heptane?

11 moles of oxygen are needed for the complete combustion of heptane. C7H16 + 11O2 --> 7CO2 + 8H2O

How can oxygen produce combustion?

Oxygen is a required reactant in a combustion reaction - without oxygen, you do not have combustion. If you combine a hydrocarbon with oxygen and add heat, you will cause a combustion reaction that results in carbon dioxide and water being formed (provided there was complete combustion).

Is oxygen a product of combustion?

No, oxygen is required for combustion to take place.

Is Mercury required for combustion?

No. Oxygen is required for combustion. Mercury is not involved.

Why does complete combustion release more energy than incomplete combustion?

in complete combustion the amount of oxygen is higher/more than the amount of oxygen in incomplete combustion. Heat needs oxygen.

What is produced when ethane react with steam?

I understand that Ethane reacts with oxygen (not steam) and producing hot water or steam according to the chemical equation:The Complete Combustion of Ethane.ethane + oxygen ---------- carbon dioxide + water + energy 2C2H6(g) + 7O2(g) -------- 4CO2(g) + 6H2O(l) + 3120 kJThe reaction is exothermic (it gives out heat)Refer to link below for more details

What are complete and incomplete combustion?

Complete combustion fuel + oxygen = water + carbon dioxide Incomplete combustion fuel + oxygen = water +carbon dioxide + soot (carbon)

What is the equation for ethane plus oxygen?

This is called Combustion and is ethane + Oxygen produces carbon dioxide + water (Dihydrogen monoxide). This can be balanced to 2 C2H6 + 7 O2 = 4 CO2 + 6 H2O

Why does excess supply of oxygen lead to complete combustion?

Complete combustion of a hydrocarbon yields carbon dioxide & water; incomplete combustion yields carbon monoxide & water. By having excess oxygen you have enough oxygen to ensure complete combustion. For example the combustion of methane (CH4):complete combustion: CH4 + 2O2 --> CO2 + 2H2Oincomplete combustion: CH4 + 1.5O2 --> CO + 2H2OAs you can see you need a 1/2 mole less of oxygen for the incomplete combustion of methane. So as long as you have twice the amount (in terms of moles) of oxygen as methane you will ensure complete combustion. So anything in excess of that will also ensure complete combustion.

Can ethane be broken down by a chemical change?

Yes. Ethane can undergo combustion, in which it reacts with oxygen to produce carbon dioxide and water. 2C2H6 + 7O2 --> 4CO2 + 6H2O

How many moles of oxygen are required to burn 22.4 liters of ethane gas C2H6 at standard conditions?

How many moles of oxygen will be produced from the complete combustion of 4 moles of propane?

No moles of oxygen are produced by complete combustion of propane. Oxygen is CONSUMED, not produced. For combustion of 4 moles of propane, it will use 20 moles of oxygen.

What are the types of combustion?

There are two main types of combustion. These are complete, in which the reactant burns in oxygen producing a few reactions, such as carbon dioxide and water. Incomplete combustion occurs when there is not enough oxygen to complete a reaction.

What is the problem of complete combustion?

To have a sufficient quantity of oxygen.

Why do you burn food in oxygen and not in air?

burning in oxygen ensures complete combustion

How are complete and incomplete combustion different?

Complete combustion leads to yellow flame while incomplete combustion leads to blue flameComplete combustion releases more heat than incomplete combustion.Incomplete combustion is more luminous than complete combustion.Combustion of saturated hydrocarbon with sufficient supply of oxygen undergoes complete combustion while unsaturated hydrocarbons undergo incomplete combustion

What are the product of combustion of an organic compound?
