Problem 33P

Methyl alcohol (CH3OH) is burned with 100 percent excess air. During the combustion process, 60 percent of the carbon in the fuel is converted to CO2 and 40 percent is converted to CO Write the balanced reaction equation and determine the air-fuel ratio.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

• Carbon o 4 valence electrons o Allows for covalent bonds with other atoms o Forms complex macromolecules because of its flexibility to form all kinds of bonds o Most common bonding partners ▪ Hydrogen (valence: 1) ▪ Oxygen (valence: 2) ▪ Nitrogen (valence: 3) ▪ Carbon (valence: 4) o Hydrocarbon: only carbon and hydrogen molecule ▪ Hydrophobic because it is a non-polar covalent bond • Isomers: same molecular formula but different structural formula o Isomers differ in chemical properties o 3 types of isomers: ▪ Structural: branching ▪ Geometric/cis-trans: arrange differently around double bonds • Cis: two bon
