Problem 56P

Propane camping stoves produce heat by the combustion of gaseous propane ($$C_{3} H_{8}$$). Balance the skeletal equation for the combustion of propane.

$$\mathrm{C}_{3} \mathrm{H}_{8}(g)+\mathrm{O}_{2}(g) \rightarrow \mathrm{CO}_{2}(g)+\mathrm{H}_{2} \mathrm{O}(g)$$

C_3 H_8

C_3 H_8 (g) + O_2 (g) right arrow CO_2 (g) + H_2 O(g)

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 56P

Here, we have to write the balanced chemical equation for the combustion of propane reaction.

In balanced chemical equation, the number of each type of atom on both sides of the equation should be equal.

The balanced chemical equation  for the combustion of propane is given below.

C3H8(g) + 5O2(g) → 3CO2 (g) + 4H2O(g)

Here,

In reactants,                                           Products

Total C atoms = 3C                        C atoms = 3

H atoms = 8                                H atoms = 8

O atoms = 10                                O atoms = 10
