When asked to balance the equation: C2H6 + O2 = CO2 + H2O the following suggestions were made: C2H6 + 5O2 = 2CO2 + 3H2O C2H6 + 5O = 2CO + 3H2O 2C2H6 + 7O2 = 4CO2 + 6H2O Which answer is correct and what is wrong with the others?

how many carbon atoms on the right side?

the number of each atom must be equal on each side of the equation remember law of conservation of mass

but I know that's not right

@15Twilight follow this to see whether an equation is balanced make a chart. and count up the number of each atom in both the reactants and the products. C2H6 + O2 = CO2 + H2O |dw:1443491750022:dw| based of of this is the equation balanced?

no

good. for your reference always do that in the future

we need to balance this now, this takes time and there's no real i guess strategy you just have to try your best to put coefficients infront of the reactants+ products to balance them.

C2H6 + 4O2 = 2CO2 + 3H2O
