One metric ton (1000 kg) of coal is required to produce 7.3 MW-hr of electrical energy. In 1993, the Thomas Hill power plant (a small, coal-fired plant supplying rural electric cooperatives) produced 5900000.0 MW-hr. If low sulfur (1%) coal were used, and the gaseous effluent were the only means of discharging the sulfur, what volume of sulfuric acid (1.84 g/mL) would be produced in that year after the resulting sulfur dioxide reacted with atmospheric oxygen and water vapor (in liters)?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com December 24, 2021, 5:12 pm ad1c9bdddf
