What type of chemical reaction is #CH_4 + 2O_2 -> CO_2 + 2H_2O#?
This is clearly a combustion reaction. How would energy transfer in this process?
While this is certainly an example of combustion, the reaction falls under the more general class of redox reactions. Oxygen gas is reduced to oxide (i.e.
Can you represent the combustion reactions of ethane and propane?
