## Write the balanced chemical equation for the complete combustion of heptene, C 7 H 14 . In combustion, hcpLcnc reacts with oxygen to produce carbon dioxide and water. What is the mole ratio that would enable you to calculate the number of moles of oxygen needed to react exactly with a given number of moles of heptene? What mole ratios would you use to calculate how many moles of each product form from a given number of moles of heptene?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Balanced chemical equation for the combustion of heptene should be written. Mole ratio that enables to calculate number of moles of oxygen that reacts exactly with given number of moles of heptene and mole ratio that enables to calculate number of moles of products form from a given moles of heptene, should be determined.

Concept Introduction:

Balanced chemical equation shows us identities of reactants and products and how much reactants and products participate in the reaction. The coefficients in the balanced equation enable us to calculate how much product we can get from a given quantity of reactant or to get a definite amount of product, how much reactants we need. The ratio of these coefficients is the useful one, not the individual coefficient. This ratio is known as Mole ratio.

### Explanation of Solution

The balanced equation for the heptene combustion is,

2 C7H14+ 21 O2        14 CO2+ 14 H2O

To calculate the number of moles of oxygen that reacts exactly with a given number of moles of heptene, we need to consider the relationship between C7 H1 4 and O2. According to the balanced equation we can write an equivalence statement that,

2 mol C7H14= 21 mol O2

From above equivalence statement we need to obtain the correct conversion factor or mole ratio that cancel the chemical formula that we doesn’t need in the final answer and keep the formula we need. So, the correct mole ratio is 21 mol O22 mol C7H14
