Best Answer

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

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).
