The balanced equation for the combustion of methanol is:

CH3OH (l)+ 3/2O2(g) -> CO2 (g)+ 2H2O(g)


CH30H + 1.502 -> CO2 + 2H20

How many moles of water are produced when 3.25 moles of CO2 are formed during the combustion of methyl alcohol CH3OH?

2CH3OH + 3O2 --> 2CO2 + 4H2O is the balanced equation for the combustion of methanol. It says that you get twice as many moles of water as you get carbon dioxide. 3.25 mol x 2 = 6.50 mol

This is a combustion reaction methanol + oxygen -> carbon dioxide + water vapor (This is the formula for a complete combustion and there is a fuel methanol reacting with oxygen to create carbon dioxide and water vapor)

How do you balance CH3OH -- CO2 plus Hโ‚‚O?

As with any combustion reaction you need to include oxygen. The full equation for methanol combustion is: CH3OH + 2 O2 --> CO2 + 2 H2O

How many moles of O2 are required to react with 23.5 moles of methanol?

Balanced equation first. 2CH4O + 3O2 -> 2CO2 + 4H2O 23.5 moles methanol (3 moles O2/2 mole CH4O) = 35.3 moles oxygen needed --------------------------------------

Why is the enthalpy change of combustion for methanol less negative than methane?

The combustion of methanol to form products of H2O and CO2 do not have as much of an energy change compared to methane and a result methanol releases less energy compared to methane. The more negative an enthalpy change is, the more heat it is going to release.

What can you use in a spirit burner that does not smell?

Most of the hydrocarbons used in spirit burners are very aromatic not least because a spirit burner does not allow for complete combustion of longer chained molecules such as petrol or paraffin.If you were to use a smaller chained fuel such as methanol or ethanol there will be more complete combustion and less aromatic waste produced.

When methanol burns and leaves a residue is it a chemical change?

Combustion is a chemical change. You would expect methanol to be fully oxidised to CO2 and water. Any residue could may be due to impurities or more likely to incomplete combustion which produced sooty carbon residues.
