c+1/2o2=co co+1/2o2=co2, what will be the requierd equation?

I would think the reactions would just be combustion of each carbon compound ie. $2C(s) / O _{2}(g) \rightarrow 2 CO (g)$ and $2CO(g) + O _{2}(g) \rightarrow 2CO _{2}(g)$

hey i'm nt getting u ?

Carbon can exist as an ion 'carbocation' with a charge of 4+ not 1+ and carbon monoxide does not have a charge since it's not an ionic compound.

But for its thermochemical equations you should be given the a set of enthalpy values?
