When butane undergoes complete combustion , the products are CO2 and H2O
C4H10(g) + O2(g)-> CO2(g) + H2O(g)
What is the value of the coefficient for oxygen when this equation is balanced

  • chemistry 1 -

    it should be 2C4HO + 8O2 - > 8CO2 + H20

  • chemistry 1--correction -

    Try this instead.
    2C4H10 + 13O2 ==> 8CO2 + 10H2O
