    Blast furnace: Iron extraction equation

    Is it Fe(2)O(3) + 3C --> 4Fe + 3CO(2) ?
    Because this is the overall equation in my revision guide but in the mark scheme it has the equation to produce CO instead of CO(2) so which one do I use?

    Thanks!

    reducing with Coke:

    Fe2O3 + 3C --> 2Fe + 3CO

    reducing with CO:

    Fe2O3 + 3CO --> 2Fe + 3CO2
