Combustion Gas Analyzer
Orsat Gas Analyzer
Using the Orsat Analyzer
Go to the virtual combustion Analysis lab:
1) Select Pentane (Molecular weight= 72.15, the enthalpy of formation=-174. kJ/mol)
2) Click to Load sample, record the fuel mass
3) Click Do Elemental analysis, check the elements, and
4) Click Do Combustion Analysis, record the product masses
Find the followings;
1) Compare mass ratio of C and H, (and possibly O) in the masses of Fuel and H2O and CO2 in the lab data and guess the chemical composition of the fuel. and check with the known chemical composition of your selected fuel.
2) Find the equation for combustion with Oxygen only (attached)
4) Estimate the Adiabatic Flame temperature with 100% air.
In order to calculate adiabatic flame temperature(AFT), since the AFT is defined as the maximum temperature (no heat transfer) in combustion with air, you need to rewrite the combustion chemical equation with the 100% air, in other words, n(O2 + 3.76 N2). Then, apply the enthalpy balance with Q=0 and follow the trial-error method as in the following document.
For chemical infor of your fuel;
search your fuel and click on “Gas phase thermochemistry data” where the enthalpy of formation can be found.

- Two: Required Actions: Discover how to manage/allocate virtual memory The size of virtual memory can sometimes be adjusted by a computer user to improve system performance. Using an operating system of your choice, discover if you can change the size of virtual memory, how to do so, and the minimum and maximum recommended sizes of virtual memory. Write a brief summary including what virtual memory is and how it is utilized by your operating system, what operating system was utilized for this hand-on exercise; providing a screen capture of the virtual memory settings, and the steps required to retrieve the desired information. (Important! Do not change the size of your virtual memory settings unless you know what you are doing. This exercise is for research purposes only.)
