Combustion/form of water produced

Postby hannahdaijo_4H » Sun Feb 10, 2019 9:49 pm

What dictates what form water products will take? The combustion equations given in 4D.3 of the 7th Edition textbook give one equation where the water product is gas and one where it is liquid.

Typically the product of combustion has water in its liquid state. I would stick with that as the norm unless the problem specifically states that the water produced should be in gas form.

Combustion produces carbon dioxide and water vapor. However, most of the time we write water in its liquid form in the reaction.
