Combustion of alkanes
A quick review....
• Combustion reactions of alkanes consist only of C and H (hydrocarbon) • require O2(g) as a reactant • produce CO2(g) and H2O(g) and a large amount of energy!!
Oxygen can be the limiting reagent which can lead to Incomplete combustion. For complete combustion of a hydrocarbon, oxygen must be in excess.
If there isn't sufficient oxygen, incomplete combustion occurs and carbon monoxide is produced instead of carbon dioxide.

• Combustion of 2,2dimethylpentane • Write the chemical formula and the balanced chemical equation for this combustion reaction.
Sulfur in Gasoline
• Sulfur in gasoline is a pollution problem • The combustion of gasoline and therefore the combustion of sulfur produces sulfur dioxide, SO2(g) • Result acid rain (Acid rain NOx your SOx off!)
N2(g) + O2(g)>
Combustion of most nonmetals produces dioxides eg. CO2, NO2,SO2,PO2, exception H2O
• Write the chemical formula and the balanced
chemical equation for the combustion of of 3,4 diethylnonane.
Incomplete Combustion &Complete Combustion
Classify the following reactions as complete or incomplete combustion.
