In the first answer, how many carbon atoms on the left side?
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
so..which one of these answers is correct?
@1stwilight before I help you out can you tell me which one you think it is and why?
It looks like all of them are correct
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?
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
2 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?
