$CH_3OCH_3(g)+3O_2(g)\rightarrow 2CO_2+3H_2O$

Work Step by Step

The basic reaction is: $CH_3OCH_3(g)+O_2(g)\rightarrow CO_2+H_2O$ Add a coefficient of 3 to $H_2O$ to balance $H$. Add a coefficient of 2 to $CO_2$ to balance $C$. $CH_3OCH_3(g)+O_2(g)\rightarrow 2CO_2+3H_2O$ Add a coefficient of 3 to $O_2$ to balance $O$. $CH_3OCH_3(g)+3O_2(g)\rightarrow 2CO_2+3H_2O$
