Problem

Write a balanced equation to show the reaction of gaseous ethane with gaseous oxygen to form carbon monoxide gas and water vapor.

A) 2 C2H6 (g) + 7 O2 (g) → 4 CO2 (g) + 6 H2O (g)

B) C2H6 (g) + 5 O (g) → 2 CO (g) + 3 H2O (g)

C) 2 C2H6 (g) + 5 O2 (g) → 4 CO (g) + 6 H2O (g)

D) C2H6 (g) + 7 O (g) → 2 CO2 (g) + 3 H2O (g)

E) 2 CH3 (g) + 5 O (g) → 2 CO (g) + 3 H2O (g)
