In winemaking, the sugars in grapes undergo fermentationby yeast to yield CH3CH2OH and CO2. During cellularrespiration, sugar and enthanol are "burned" to water vapor andCO2.
A) Using C6H12O6 for sugar, calculate ÄH of fermentation and of respiration(combustion).
B) Write a combustion reaction for ethanol. Which has ahigher ÄH for combustion per mole of C, sugaror ethanol?
am I right?
I need help with B)balancing the equation. Thanks.

i think it's
C2H6OH(l) + 3O2(g) ---> 2CO2(g) + 3H2O(g)....
Is it right?
