Can someone please check to see if I balanced this chem. equation which is an incomplete combustion reaction:

2C3H8 + 11O2 ->> 3CO2 + 4H2O +2CO +C(s)

My answer:
7C3H8 +22O2 -->> 6CO2 + 28H2O +4CO +11C


  • Chemistry -

    If the purpose is to balance the equation, it is balanced.

    Thank you.
