Question:

List the number of each type of atom on both sides of the following equation. Is it properly balanced? If not, balance it correctly.

{eq}C_2H_8(g) + 7O_2(g) \to 3CO_2(g) + 6H_2O(g) {/eq}

Combustion:

Combustion is the phenomenon of change of the chemical identity of a hydrocarbon material or the substance resulting in the formation of carbon dioxide and water as by-products.

Suppose the chemical equation of combustion or any chemical reaction is unbalanced; proper stoichiometric coefficients must be written for all the reactants and products.
