When the following equation is balanced in standard form, what is the coefficient in front of CO2(g)? C2H6(g) + O2(g) ® CO2(g) + H2O(l) A)1 B)2 C)3 D)4 E)5
The balanced equation is:
In this case the coefficient is 2.
I could double everything then it would be 4.
I guess that is what you mean by "standard form"?
The balanced chemical equation for the combustion of ethane, or
This means that the coefficient in front of
SIDE NOTE You'll sometimes see this written with fractional coefficients, but the standard form equation has coefficients that are integers for all species involved.
