Concept: Balancing Chemical Reactions

Problem: Write a balanced chemical equation for the reaction that occurs when dimethylether, CH3OCH3(g), is combusted in air.

FREE Expert Solution

We have to write a balanced equation for the combustion of dimethylether, CH3OCH3(g), in air.

The oxygen (O2) gas in air is responsible for the burning of all substances.


When writing a chemical equation, we write the reactants on the left-hand side and the products on the right-hand side.

Reactants: CH3OCH3(g)and O2(g)
