1CH4+2O2 = 1CO2+2H2O.

Can any one solve this problem.

Nitin Kumar said: (Dec 11, 2016)  
1CH4 + 2O2 = CO2 + 2H2O.
1[12 + 4] + 2[32] = [12 + 32] + 2[2 + 16},
16 + 64 = 44 + 36,
80 = 80.

So the question is correct.

Well said @Nitin.

According to Avagdro law, equal volume of different gases at same temperature and pressure contain a same number of molecules. And the number of molecules is related to the number of moles. So we can say a number of moles are same as volume.

@Nitin.

It will need one more molecule of oxygen to be balanced.
