C4H10O(l) + O2(g) --- CO(g) + H2O(g)
When I balanced it I got this
C4H10O(I) + 4O2(g) --- 4CO(g) + 5H2O

Am I correct

asked by Monique
  1. Yes; however, you need not ask if you are correct. You count atoms on the left and see if the same number is on the right. If so it balances; if not, it doesn't.
    I see 4C atoms on each side.
    I see 10 H atoms on each side.
    I see 9 O atoms on each side.
    Balanced.

    For C4H10O a constitutional isomer can be written as C-C-C-C-O-H with hydrogens also coming off of the 4 carbons. I know that this is an alcohol. I need to know if there are stereoisomers for this other than conformers. I think

    here I have a (hopefully) balanced equation. Would you mind pointing out my errors, and explaining the right way to fix them? Thanks in advance. C5H12 + O2 yields CO2 + H2O I balanced this as: 2C5H12 +4O2 yields 5 CO2+6H2O.
