Silane SiH4 is a gas molecule similar to methane CH4 where the carbon has been replaced by Silicon. It is roughy twice as heavy as methane and is pyrophoric.

There is no net ionic equation as both silane oxygen gas are covalent (as the fact that they are gasses would suggest). The chemical equation is: SiH4(g) + 2O2(g) --> SiO2(s) + 2H2O(g)

the shape of silane is tetrahedral and the polarity is ionic

Silicon tetrahydride, silane.Silicon tetrahydride, often called silane.

Silane has the chemical formula SiH4; but silane has covalent bonds.

Yes, SiH4, commonly known as silane, is a compound of silicon and hydrogen. It is a gas that burns on contact to air.

Silane has the formula SiH4.

Silane, which has the chemical formula SiH4, is a colorless and flammable gas. It is non-polar due to the equal sharing of electrons and the cancellation of the dipole moments.

No. A gas is any material that has neither definite shape nor definite volume. There are many flammable gasses such as methane, silane, and hydrogen, but there are also many nonflammable gasses such as nitrogen, oxygen, and helium.

There is no such compound. Did you mean SiH4 - this is called silane

556g, 17.31 mol, approx 388 l vol at STP SiH4 density is 556kg/m3, (source airliquide website) which is 556g/l SiH4 has a molecular weight of 32.12, therefore 556 g is 556/32.12 moles= 17.31 mol Assuming ideal gas 22.4 l per mol volume at standard temp and pressure we get approxiamte volume of 388 litres

No. SiH4, known as silane, is a nonpolar molecule with polar bonds. Despite containing hydrogen, silane molecules do not feature hydrogen bonding between them because silane is nonpolar, and hydrogen bonding is a particle-level property of polar compounds.

Four, to form the compound silane with formula SiH4.

Silane. It is similar to methane, CH4, and ignites on contact with air.

The chemical equation is:SiH4 = Si + 2 H2

Silicon will react easily with oxygen (to form the network solid SiO2), hydrogen (to form silane gas), and the halogens to form silicon halides.

Frederick Stanly Kipping was one of the first researchers into silane materials. The word "silicone" was his invention.

I'm not a chemist, but I rather feel that you'd only be able to combine the Al and the Si. But on a little research, indeed a few of the silicides exist, including a Mg variant, which when mixed with HCl, produces a gas Silane, SiH4, the Si analog of Methane. But more reactive. Given that He is a noble gas, it may not combine.

I would guess it turns to silane, leaving soot in the tube.
