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).
The combustion of diethyl ether, C4H10O, using oxygen gas, O2, produces carbon dioxide gas, CO2, and liquid water, H2O. The chemical equation is:
