Solution

## Balanced equationA balanced equation involves an equal number of atoms for each element on reactant and product side. Balanced equation for methane with oxygenWhen Methane $\left({\mathrm{CH}}_{4}\right)$ reacts with Oxygen $\left({\mathrm{O}}_{2}\right)$, the formation of Carbon dioxide $\left({\mathrm{CO}}_{2}\right)$ and Water $\left({\mathrm{H}}_{2}\mathrm{O}\right)$ takes place.The balanced chemical reaction is as follows:- ${\mathrm{CH}}_{4}\left(\mathrm{g}\right)+2{\mathrm{O}}_{2}\left(\mathrm{g}\right)\to {\mathrm{CO}}_{2}\left(\mathrm{g}\right)+2{\mathrm{H}}_{2}\mathrm{O}\left(\mathrm{g}\right)$
