Pentane gas (C5H12) combusts with oxygen gas (O2) to form water (H2O) and carbon dioxide (CO2). Write a balanced chemical equation for this reaction and explain the scientific principle (statement) that requires the balancing of an equation to make it conform to reality.

  • Chemistry -

    C5H12 + 8O2 ==> 5CO2 + 6H2O

    Here is the balanced equation. You fill in the explanations.
