Whats the equation of the complete combustion of carbon? I thought it'd be:
but I thought the products of complete combustion are water and carbon dioxide so I was wondering where the water comes from or if its just carbon dioxide.

If it was the combustion of a hydrocarbon then you would have water as a product but if you are combusting carbon then the only product is CO2. If you think about the definition of enthalpy change combustion: energy change when one mole of fuel completely reacts with oxygen under standard conditions. There is no Hydrogen involved in this fuel so no water is produced
