🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor McAfee's class at PITTSTATE.
The combustion of diethyl ether, C4H10O, using oxygen gas, O2, produces carbon dioxide gas, CO2, and liquid water, H2O. The chemical equation is:
Diethyl ether, C4H10O (l), a flammable compound that has long been used as a surgical anesthetic, has the structure
CH3 - CH2 - O - CH2 - CH3
The complete combustion of 1 mol of C4H10O (l) to CO2 (g) and H2O (l) yields Ho= -2723.7 kJ.
Write a balanced equation for the combustion of 1 mol of C4H10O (l).
