Solution: Part A:Consider the partial oxidation of ethane as shown in the following reaction: C2H6(g) + O2(g) → 2CO(g) + 3H2(g) First, write dot structures for C2H6, O2, CO, and H2. Part B:Was ethane really oxidized in this reaction? Assign oxidation numbers. Was C2H6 oxidized? __________ If so, did oxidation occur at C or H or both?
