What is the balanced equation for the incomplete combustion of heptene, #C_7H_14#?
Is the given equation stoichiometrically balanced?
And how did I know that 1 mole each of carbon monoxide and carbon (as soot) would result? Of course, I don't KNOW that, but I can nevertheless represent the possibility: i.e. some of the carbon is incompletely combusted. I could also represent the thermodynamic properties of the equation.
Of course complete combustion demands complete carbon oxidation to give:
