Problem: Enter a balanced equation for the complete combustion of liquid C2H5SH.

FREE Expert Solution

We are asked to give the balanced equation for the complete combustion of liquid C2H5SH


Combustion

  • Reactant: O2
  • Products: CO2, H2O and SO2 


Unbalanced reaction: 

C2H5SH + O→ CO2 +  H2O + SO2 

Balance C:

C2H5SH + O→ 2 CO2 +  H2O + SO2 

Balance H:

C2H5SH + O→ 2 CO2 + 3 H2O + SO2 

Balance S:

C2H5SH + O→ 2 CO2 + 3 H2O + SO2  (S is balanced)

Balance O: 

C2H5SH + 9/2 O→ 2 CO2 + 3 H2O + SO2
