What is the incomplete combustion formula for heptane?

Recommended Posts

Complete Combustion of Hexane is: 2(C6H14) + 19O2 12CO2 + 14H2O + Energy

Incomplete Combustion of Hexane is: C6H14 + 5O2 CO2 + CO + 4C + 7H2O

Compete combustion of Heptane would yield CO2but incomplete would yield CO.So Heptane and oxygen would give carbon monoxide and water in combustion reaction.

But what if you only gave it 4 O2 molecules?

What about some number between 4 and 19?
