Before we dive into this question, let's catch up with our friend Guy Smith. [Guy Smith jumps in through a window]
We heard he’s become a spy or something.
Let’s check in with him.
Hm, looks like Special Agent Smith has gotten himself into an explosive situation…[Men point a gun at Agent Smith]
Maybe he could use our help to escape.
See those conveniently located methane tanks right next to that dangerous open flame? [Methane tanks near an open flame]
…Any ideas, agent Smith?
Okay…let's try again.
What are the products of the reaction between methane gas (CH4) and oxygen?
The methane molecule, CH4, is made up of only hydrogen and carbon atoms, which means it’s
a – drum roll, please - hydrocarbon.
Wonder how they came up with such a creative name.
Hydrocarbons like to react with oxygen molecules in combustion reactions. [Fire burns away message and Agent Smith appears]
That means the hydrocarbons burn, baby, burn.
All combustion reactions have the same products: carbon dioxide, water… and a lot of heat.
Hint, hint, Agent Smith.
That means the answer to this problem is…
You got it, choice (C).
Now, Agent Smith, do you know what to do?
