No its a combustion reaction, not a double replacement

Choose all of the statements that are true about this combustion reaction C2H6 plus 3 O2 2 CO2 plus 3 H2O?

This equation is not balanced correctly. This is an example of a redox reaction.

How do you balance the equation C2H6 plus O2 equals CO2 plus H2O?

2 C2H6 + 7 O2 → 4 CO2 + 6 H2O Every thing balanced first but O2. Leave that for last.

How do you balance C2H6 plus O2 - CO2 plus H2O?

2C2H6 + 7O2 -> 4CO2 + 6H2O

What quantity of reactants remains after ignition of a mixture that contains 2 moles of C2H6 mixed with 1.6 moles of O2?

Balanced equation first. 2C2H6 + 7O2 -> 4CO2 +6H2O I suspect C2H6 of limiting the reaction. 2 moles C2H6 (1.6 moles O2/2 moles C2H6) = 1.6 moles O2 left over and all of the C2H6 is consumed.

How would you write this balanced C2H6 plus O2 ---- CO2 plus H2O?
