Write the word and chemical equation for the following:
Hexane undegoes complete combustion.

I'm not sure at all how to do this one. I know that for compelte combustion, the products have to be H2O + O, but I don't know the formula for Hexane.

  • Chemistry -

    Hexane C6H14.

    Combustion is the reaction with oxygen which produces carbon dioxide and water.

    You better memorize this if you want to pass chemistry.
