To write the balance combustion reaction of complete combustion of glucose and to calculate the theoretical yield of carbon dioxide when 1.00 g of glucose is burned completely.
A balanced chemical equation is an equation that contains same number of atoms as well as of each element of reactants and products of reaction.
In combustion reaction organic compounds burn in presence of oxygen or air and produce water and carbon dioxide with energy. It is an exothermic reaction. In this reaction, carbon is oxidized by addition of oxygen to carbon dioxide.
For example the combustion reaction of ethane is following:
The general reaction of combustion as follows:
Mass of any substance can be calculated as follows:
Number of moles can be calculated as follows;
