An explosive whose chemical formula is C3H6N6O6 produces water, carbon dioxide, and nitrogen gas when detonated in oxygen. write the chemical equation for the detonation reaction of this explosive.

  • chemistry -

    C3H6N6O6 + O2==> H2O + CO2 + CO2 + N2
    You should be able to balance this.
    2C3H6N6O6 + 9O2 ==> 6H2O + 6CO2 + 6CO2 + 6N2

  • chemistry -

    your carbon atoms aren't equal and i didn't split up my carbon dioxides however it should change anything balancing wise.
    2C3H6N6O6 + 3O2==> 6h20 +6CO2(or 3CO2 +3CO2) + 6N2
    C=6 C=6
    H=12 H=12
    N=12 N=12
    O=18 O=18
    Hope this helps!
