Problem 64P

Gaseous E10 fuel is 10 percent ethanol (C2H6O) and 90 percent octane (C8H18) on a kmol basis. This fuel is burned with 110 percent theoretical air. During the combus-tion process, 90 percent of the carbon in the fuel is converted to CO2 and 10 percent is converted to CO. Determine

(a) the balanced combustion equation,

(b) the dew-point temperature of the products, in °C, for a product pressure of 100 kPa,

(c) the heat transfer for the process, in kJ, after 2.5 kg of fuel are burned and the reactants and products are at 25°C with the water in the products remaining a gas, and

(d) the relative humidity of atmospheric air for the case where the atmospheric air is at 25°C and 100 kPa and the products are found to contain 9.57 kmol of water vapor per kmol of fuel burned.

Step 1 of 3

Week 11: Air Quality 11.8.16 Composition ● Nitrogen (76%) Air Quality ● Many European cities do not meet world health organization air quality standards for at least one pollutant ● In the US, about a quarter of the population lives in areas that do not meet us air quality standards Smog ● A mixture of pollutants, principally ground-level ozone, produced by chemical reactions in the air involving smog-forming chemicals ● Formed by anthropogenic and/or natural sources ● Enters body through inhalation. Ozone is highly reactive (O3) reacts in your airways. Causes issues for asthmatics Temperature inversion ● An atmospheric condition during which a warm layer of air stalls above a layer of cool air that is closer
