CO2 more stable product than CO and soot
Burning methane in oxygen can produce three different carbon-containing products: soot (very fine particles of graphite), CO(g), and CO2(g).
Why, when the oxygen supply is adequate, is CO2(g) the predominant carbon-containing product of the combustion of methane?
