How would you balance the following equation: CH4 + O2 --> CO2 + H2O?

CH4 + 2O2 → CO2 + 2H2O

Methane + Dioxygen = Carbon Dioxide + Water

The reaction is named as combustion reaction. When this reaction takes place, the result is carbon dioxide (CO2), water (H2O), and a great deal of energy. Burning methane releases only carbon dioxide and water. Since natural gas is mostly methane, the combustion of natural gas releases fewer by-products than other fossil fuels.
