Hello, I know I should have knowledge of this, but I can't seem to remember very well what happens in combustion reactions with a very short supply, limited supply, and abundant supply of oxygen. What is the difference? I know complete combustion hands down, but what happens in a problem such as this... (Write a balanced equation to represent the following) a) Combustion of butane in a very short supply of oxygen [?] Thanks so much! I don't need answers really, just an explanation of the three categorizations and their significance while writing the equations.
