P4 + O2

What does this create? I know that light is one of the ofsprings, but wht does it make? What does the final equasion look like?

Thankyou so much to anybody who can help!

Phosphorous pentoxide is the product.

P4 + 10O2 ---> 2P2O5

Edit:

Old equation was a mistake. Pentoxide is P2O5

Is that the only way to make up this equasion? There is not a solution to P4+02 in that exact form?

Depending on the conditions you could have P2O5, P4O10.

And can I be a pain and ask what the conditions for each are? Is it to do with Phosperous being one of the exceptions to the acid/base oxidization?

If there is excess oxygen, you will get P4O10 from P4, though the product depends on the crystal structure. Different polymorphs will give different products.

White and yellow P will react with oxygen to form P2O5 or P4O10 depending on the oxygen abundance and the temperature.

Red phosphorous isnt as reactive and needs high temperatures to form P2O5 or P4O10.

Edit: Acida and bases react with P to form the salt of the acid. Google is your friend.

Also google search chemical forums, they can help you better. Im not an inorganic chemist. Im more of an organic chemist.
