Stoichiometry

Methane+Oxygen

CH4+202----->CO2+2H20

Your first step is Balancing your equation.

Balancing Equation

Balance your equations by making sure you have to same amount of each element on both sides.

Naming Elements

CH4 - Methane

O2 - oxygen

CO2 - carbon dioxide

H2O - water


Molar Mass's

CH4 - 16.1g/mol

O2 - 64g/mol

CO2 - 44.01g/mol

H2O - 36 g/mol
