Combustion Reactions: Thermochemistry

1. The analysis by mass of a sample of petrol was 85.5% C and 14.5% H2. Calculate the stoichiometric A/F ratio. Also determine the actual A/F ratios and the dry analyses for mixture strengths of 90% and 120%.
2. Find the stoichiometric A/F ratio (by mass) for the combustion of benzene (C6H6). Compute the actual A/F ratio and do a wet and dry analysis of the products by volume at a mixture strength of 95%.
