A car gets 9.2 kilometers to a liter of gasoline. Assuming that gasoline is 100% octane (C8H18), which has a density of 0.69 g/cm3, how many liters of air (21% oxygen by volume at STP) will be required to burn the gasoline for a 1250-km trip? Assume complete combustion.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com October 24, 2018, 9:15 pm ad1c9bdddf
It finds the volume of air required to burn the gasoline for a 1250 km trip. The solution is detailed and has a '5/5' rating.
C2H5OH burns in air:
balance the equation and determine the volume of air in liters at 35.0 C and 790 mmHg required to burn 227 g of ethanol. assume that air is 21.0 percent O_2 by volume.
