Combustion Chemical Reactions

Postby chrisavalos-2L » Sat Nov 03, 2018 10:44 pm

I was wondering if the question asks to balance the combustion equation for a specific element how are we to know what will be produced by the combustion equation, is it always the same?

In combustion, the reactants is always whatever they give you with Oxygen (O2) and the products is H20 and CO2...however, make sure to balance the equation my friend!

Hope this helps ?? Lemme know if it doesn't I will respond with more explanations :)

I agree with what Tony said!

A combustion reaction will always be (some compound) + O2 --> CO2 + H2O

And according to that compound, that will help you balance the equation. Sometimes, there will be more things produced but the question will have to tell you the extra molecules that were produced.
