Write a balanced chemical equation for the combustion of acetylene if the products are:
a) Carbon and water vapour
b) Carbon monoxide and water vapour
c) Carbon, carbon dioxide. Carbon monoxide and water vapour
d) The complete combustion of acetylene

    What's your problem in doing this. The problem tells you the products they want.
    a)
    2C2H2 + O2 ==> 4C + 2H2O

    b)
    2C2H2 + 5O2 ==> 4CO2 + 2H2O

    c and d are done the same way.
