Combustion is complete when all the carbon present in the fuel is burned to
carbon dioxide, all the hydrogen is burned to water, all the sulfur is burned to
sulfur dioxide, and all other combustion combustible elements are fully oxidized.
When these conditions are not fulfilled, combustion is incomplete.

DETERMINING PRODUCTS OF COMBUSTION
DRY PRODUCT ANALYSIS
Orsat analyzer, gas chromatograph etc.

Usually measurements are given on the dry basis i.e except water
Numerical problem
Methane, CH
4
, is burned with dry air. The molar analysis of the products on a dry basis is
CO
2
, 9.7%; CO, 0.5%; O
2
, 2.95%; and N
2
, 86.85%. Determine (a) the airfuel ratio on both a
molar and a mass basis, (b) the percent theoretical air
Heat of formation
Heat absorbed when one kmol of substance is formed from its constituent elements
in their standard state at 298.15 K and 1 atm, through a (p,T) = const process.
Heat of formation of all elements in their most naturally occurring states is assigned
as zero (by convention)

PROBLEM:
Methane gas at 400 K and 1 atm enters a combustion chamber, where it is mixed with
theoretically correct air entering at 500 K and 1 atm. The products of combustion exit at 1800 K
and 1 atm. For operation at steady state, determine the rate of heat transfer from the
combustion chamber in kJ per kmol of fuel. Neglect kinetic and potential energy effects. The
average value for the specific heat of methane between 298 and 400 K is 38 kJ/kmol K.

Reactions at Constant Volume
13
PROBLEM:
A mixture of 1 kmol of gaseous methane and 2 kmol of oxygen initially at 298 and 1 atm
burns completely in a closed, rigid container. Heat transfer occurs until the products are
cooled to 900 K. If the reactants and products each form ideal gas mixtures, determine (a)
the amount of heat transfer, in kJ, and (b) the final pressure, in atm.
Heating Value
14
Heating value of a fuel is a positive number equal to the magnitude of the enthalpy of
combustion.

Higher Heating Value (HHV): obtained when all the water formed by combustion is a liquid

Lower heating value (LHV): obtained when all the water formed by combustion is a vapor.

The higher heating value exceeds the lower heating value by the energy that would be required
to vaporize the liquid formed.
PROBLEM:
Calculate the enthalpy of combustion of gaseous methane, in kJ per kg of fuel, (a) at
298 K, 1 atm with liquid water in the products, (b) at 298 K, 1 atm with water vapor in
the products.
Adiabatic Flame Temperature
If all the heat released in a combustion reaction goes into raising the
temperature of the products, then the resulting temperature is called Adiabatic
Flame Temperature, T
f
. This is the theoretically maximum temperature.






15
PROBLEM:
Liquid octane at 298 K, 1 atm enters a well-insulated reactor and reacts with air entering at the
same temperature and pressure. For steady-state operation and negligible effects of kinetic and
potential energy, determine the temperature of the combustion products for complete
combustion with (a) the theoretical amount of air, (b) 400% theoretical air.
