Expert Answer:

Dear student
 

the combustion of carbon monoxide to carbon dioxide is thermodynamically favourable but certain amount of energy is required to break existing bonds before new bonds can be formed (an activation energy). At room temperature very few molecules have enough energy to overcome the activation energy, and so the reaction is very

in case of silicon monoxide it is thermodynamically unstable and due to bigger size of Silicon bonds can be easily broken
