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
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 kJ The reaction is exothermic (it gives out heat) Refer to link below for more details
I am presuming that you are asking how many carbon dioxide (CO2) molecules will be formed when two ethane (C2H6) molecules burn in a plentiful supply of oxygen. The following balanced equation is that of the burning of ethane in a plentiful supply of oxygen: C2H6 + 3.5O2 -----> 2CO2 + 3H2O. The number before each of the molecules in the equation tells us how many there are in this reaction. This means that for…
