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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02 atoms of carbon 6 atoms of hydrogen, 8 atoms of oxygen products: 2 atoms of carbon 4 atoms of oxygen, and 6 atoms of hydrogen ..am I right?
