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. Concept Introduction: 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: 2 C 2 H 6 ( g ) + 7 O 2 ( g ) → Δ 4 C O 2 ( g ) + 6 H 2 O ( g ) Reactants Products The general reaction of combustion as follows: Organic compound + O 2 ( g ) → Δ C O 2 ( g ) + H 2 O ( l ) + energy Mass of any substance can be calculated as follows: Mass in gram = Number of moles × Molar mass Number of moles can be calculated as follows; Number of moles = mass in g molar mass .

Chapter 9, Problem 70AP
Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

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.

Concept Introduction:

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:

2 C2H6(g) + 7 O2(g)Δ4 CO2(g) + 6 H2O(g)              Reactants                         Products             

The general reaction of combustion as follows:

Organic compound + O2(g) Δ CO2 (g) + H2O (l)+energy

Mass of any substance can be calculated as follows:

Mass in gram = Number of moles×Molar mass

Number of moles can be calculated as follows;

Number of moles=mass in gmolarmass.
