# What type of chemical reaction is C_3H_8 + O_2 -> CO_2+H_2O?

Mar 11, 2016

${C}_{3} {H}_{8} \left(g\right) + 5 {O}_{2} \left(g\right) \rightarrow 3 C {O}_{2} \left(g\right) + 4 {H}_{2} O \left(l\right)$
Carbon is OXIDIZED to $C \left(I V\right)$; dioxygen is reduced to $O \left(- I I\right)$. This equation is stoichiometrically balanced.
