Sterno, or “canned heat,” contains methanol, CH3OH, and is used for heating containers of food.Write a balanced equation to represent the combustion reaction that occurs when methanol burns in air.

Sterno, or “canned heat,” contains methanol, CH3OH, and is used for heating containers of food.Write a balanced equation to represent the combustion reaction that occurs when methanol burns in air.
A)CH3OH(l) + O2(g)  CO2(g) + H2O(g)
B)2CH3OH(l) + 6O2(g)  2CO2(g) + 4H2O(g)
C)2CH3OH(l) + 3O2(g)  2CO2(g) + 4H2O(g)
D)2CH3OH(l) + O2(g)  C2O2(g) + H2(g)
E)CH3OH(l) + O2(g)  CH4O3(g)
