Methane, CH4, burns in oxygen gas to form water and carbon dioxide. What is the correct balanced chemical equation for this reaction? A. CH4 + O → H2O + CO2 B. CH4 + 4O → 2H2O + CO2 C. CH4 + O2 → H2O + CO2 D. CH4 + 2O2 → 2H2O + CO2

Burns oxygen, note that oxygen is a diatomic element which means?

doesn't form peroxide...

mkay....still a little confused.....

combustion reactions will always have co2 and h2o as products

therefor you just have to balance the equation and pick the correct answer

It gives you the reaction you simply have to remember the basics, oxygen and carbon = diatomic elements meaning there's always 2. Then balance the equation

oooooh! okay! :D
Astrophysics

So diatomic means \[O_2, N_2, F_2\] sorry I said carbon was diatomic it isn't haha
Astrophysics

There's 7 elements that fall into this category
Astrophysics

\[CH_4 + O_2 ->\] what's next
Astrophysics

(Note we will still have to balance it after)

okay now can you help me with the balancing part? im totally not good at all of this
anonymous
  • anonymous
idk whats next >.< ugh
Astrophysics
  • Astrophysics
Read the question, what are the products
Astrophysics

Just set up the unbalanced equation right now and we'll balance it after

tahts the thing i need help understanding...setting up the equations...>.< im homeschooled and dont have a teacher

Methane, CH4, burns in oxygen gas to form water and carbon dioxide. \[Ch_4 + O_2 -> H_2O+CO_2\] reading what you have should be able to set it up as above
Astrophysics
  • Astrophysics
\[CH_4 + O_2 -> H_2O+CO_2\]
Astrophysics
  • Astrophysics
Now you have to balance the amount of carbon, oxygen, hydrogen etc
Astrophysics
  • Astrophysics
Notice there are 4 hydrogens on the left, and 2 on right so you can multiply the on right to balance it with the left, see if you can figure this out
