(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

I want to find a relationship between the number of moles of O2 used and the number of CH2 units in an alkane in a complete combustion reaction.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Right now I have come up with a math equation, given X units of CH2, to find the number of O2 moles. I used patterns to find the equation, is there any other relationship? The more units of CH2 you have, the more O2 you need to combust it right?
