Combustion Reaction Formula :

A combustion reaction is a reaction in which a substance reacts with oxygen gas, releasing energy in the form of light and heat. Combustion reactions must involve O2O2 as one reactant. The combustion of hydrogen gas produces water vapor:

The heat of combustion = Heat of formation of product – Heat of formation of reactants.

Methane (CH4)+ oxygen(202) = carbon dioxide(CO2) + water (2H2O)+ energy.

Sample Problems :

Problem1 :

Combustion of methane:

Solution :

CH4+2O2→CO2+2H2O + Energy

Problem2 :

Combustion of propane:

Solution :

C3H8 + 5O2 → 3CO2 +4H2O

Problem3 :

Combustion of cellulose:

Solution :

C6H10O5  + 6O2 → 6CO2 + 5H2O
