This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

A fuel has the following weight percentage composition:

C = 52%, H = 11%, S = 0%, O = 9%, moisture = 13%, Ash = 15%

100 kg of this fuel is burned and you need to calculate the mass of oxygen required for this combustion reaction to occur.

(The 'fuel' is an un-named carbon-hydrogen mix which combines with oxygen to form carbon dioxide and water. From the percentages given, you know you have 52 kg C and 11 kg H.)

Problem: A fuel has the following weight percentage composition:

C = 52%, H = 11%, S = 0%, O = 9%, moisture = 13%, Ash = 15%

100 kg of this fuel is burned and you need to calculate the mass of oxygen required for this combustion reaction to occur.

Solution:

a carbon dioxide consists of one mole of carbon and two moles of oxygen. since molar mass of carbon is 12 ...
