    6C5H10O2 + 39O2 = 30CO2 + 30H2O

    There is the balanced equation.

    You need '39' molecules of oxygen .

    It produces on combustion '30' molecules of carbon dioxide, and '30' molecules of water.

    2 C5H10O2 + 13 O2 → 10 CO2 + 10 H2O

    (6 molecules C5H10O2) x (13 molecules O2 / 2 molecules C5H10O2) =

    39 molecules O2
