    Please help with the following problems:

    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 ...
