# What is the chemical equation for burning wood?

For simplicity, we deal with the formula of cellulose, whose formula is more or less that of wood...., i.e. ${C}_{6} {H}_{10} {O}_{5}$
${C}_{6} {H}_{10} {O}_{5} \left(s\right) + 6 {O}_{2} \left(g\right) \rightarrow 6 C {O}_{2} \left(g\right) + 5 {H}_{2} O \left(l\right)$
