# Can you explain the combustion of 1*mol of ethyl alcohol in terms of mass and energy?

${C}_{2} {H}_{5} O H \left(l\right) + 3 {O}_{2} \left(g\right) \rightarrow 2 C {O}_{2} \left(g\right) + 3 {H}_{2} O + \Delta$
Both mass and charge are balanced, as is ABSOLUTELY REQUIRED.... There are 7 oxygen atom reactants, i.e. $112 \cdot g$, and $112 \cdot g$ oxygen products....
And because we make STRONG $C = O$ and $H - O$ bonds, the reaction is exothermic, and releases energy.
