Butane in Bunsen Burner in School Laboratory

A common Bunsen burner used in the school laboratory.  It consists of butane gas
The butane gas in the cartridge under combustion in the presence of oxygen gas produce carbon dioxide and water. 

Chemical equation for complete combustion of butane. 
When there is insufficient of oxygen(the hole of Bunsen burner is closed), incomplete combustion occurs and sooty flame is produced.
