(Important -  Enter only the numerical value in the answer)


Detailed Solution for Mechanical Engineering - ME 2016 GATE Paper (Practice Test) - Question 27

C3H8 + xO2 → aCO2 + bH2O
Carbon balance :
a = 3
hydrogen balance:
2b = 8 → b = 4
Oxygen balance:
2x = 2a + b

For chemically correct or stoichiometric burning, no. of moles of O2 required are = 5.
As it is burnt with 10% deficient oxygen, it will generate CO.
The new equation is
C3H8 + 0.9 x 5O2 → aCO2 + bCO + cH2O
Carbon balance:
a + b = 3
Hydrogen balance:
2c = 8 → c = 4
Oxygen balance:
2a + b + c = 0.9 x 5 x 2 = 9
2a + b + c = 9
⇒ 2a + b + 4 = 9 ⇒ 2a + b = 5 … (1)
a + b = 3 … (2)
By solving (1) & (2)
a = 2 & b = 1
in the exhaust products the no. of moles of CO are 1.% by volume of CO in exhaust.
