Balance the photosynthesis equation:
CO2+ H2O-> C6H12O6+ O2
Which i think this is Balanced:
6CO2 + 6H2O + energy-> C6H12O6 + 6O2 ?

The question is this:
According to the balanced equation __________ moles of carbon dioxide will react with _________moles of water to produce _________moles of sugar and ________ moles of oxygen.

PLEAS HELP!!! i been trying on this one problem since 3 pm it's now 12:31 am/:

    Your reaction equation is correctly balanced.

    According to the balanced equation, 6 moles of carbon dioxide will react with 6 moles of water to produce 1 mole of sugar and 6 moles of oxygen.

    The answers are the coefficients in your balanced equation.

    thanks !:) so then what would this one be ?
    What are the molar masses of the following compounds from the photosynthesis equation?
    CO2=___________g=1 mole
    H20=___________g=1 mole
    C6H12O6=________g=1 mole
    O2=________g=1 mole ??

  • Chemistry -

    is either of these correct ?
    1. 8CO2 + 6H20 -> 8O2
    or
    2. 3CO2 + 6H2O -> 1C6H1206 + 3O2

  • Chemistry -

    1 is wrong. What happened to C and H?
    2. Do the C balance? you have 3 on the left, and six on the right.
