A compound containg 3 atoms of carbon and 8 atoms of hydrogen is combined in a reaction with oxygen molecules. The two end products of this equation are carbon dioxide (CO2) and water. What element should you look at first in balancing this equation? Is the answer a.b.c or d?
When you have finished balancing the equation for the above question, which chemical element will have the largest number of molecules in your balanced equation? choose a. b. c. or d?
a. the C3H
b. the oxygen
c. the carbon dioxide
d. the water
What do you not understand about balancing equations? I can balance the equation and give you the answers to both questions but that won't help you in the future. Start with C and go from there.
