Name the products formed when ethane burns in the air. Write a balanced chemical equation for the reaction showing the types of energies liberated.

#### Solution

When ethane (CH3−CH3) is burned in air (oxygen), it forms carbon dioxide and water.

The balanced chemical equation is written as follws:-

CH_3-CH_3+7/2O_2rarr2CO_2+3H_2O+Heat

This reaction is called an exothermic reaction due to evolution of heat.
