The balanced equation for the combustion of butane combines two molecules of butane with 13 oxygen molecules. The combination produces eight molecules of carbon dioxide and 10 water molecules. More »

The balanced equation for the combustion of methane (CH4) is CH4 + 2O2 -- CO2 + 2H2O. The equation is balanced because the number of atoms for every element is the same on both the reactant and the product sides. More »

The chemical equation for the combustion of hydrogen is 2H2 + O2 → 2H2O. During hydrogen combustion, the heat from burning makes hydrogen chemically react with oxygen gas, O2, in the air to form water. More »

In words, the equation for combustion, in most cases, is a hydrocarbon plus oxygen equals carbon dioxide plus water plus heat. Other cases involve burning hydrogen and oxygen without carbon and reactions that create carb... More »

The balanced equation for the combustion of methane (CH4) is CH4 + 2O2 -- CO2 + 2H2O. The equation is balanced because the number of atoms for every element is the same on both the reactant and the product sides. More »

The oxidation reaction of iron and oxygen to form the substance that is commonly called rust occurs according to this equation: 4Fe + 3O2 = 2Fe2O3. Water is also required for this reaction to occur, but because the total... More »

The balanced equation for photosynthesis is: 6CO2 + 6H2O + sunlight energy = C6H12O6 + 6O2 Photosynthesis can be represented using a chemical equation: Carbon dioxide + water + light energy gives a carbohydrate + oxygen. More »
