    Liquid Octane at 25C, 1 bar is burned with air at 500K in a steady flow combustor. The products of combustion are cooled to 1400K, 1 bar and have the following volumetric analysis on a dry basis: 10.7% CO_@; 3.6% CO; 5.3% O_2 and 80.4% N_2. Determine the percentage excess air supplied, the dewpoint of the products and the heat transfer per kilomole of fuel during the combustion process.

    a) Finding air excess percentage

    We will use following notations:
    rx = the molar (volumetric) percentage of component "x" in a mixture
    Mx = molar mass (kg/kmol)
    hx = specific enthalpy of component "x" (kJ/kg)
    Hx = molar specific enthalpy (kJ/kmol)
    Rx = gas constant ...
