3-4 flammability limits for hydrocarbons, but the method does not apply to chlorinated hydrocarbons, such as vinyl chloride. Also note that the data above are for vinyl chloride only. Similar data are needed for ethylene, acetylene, chlorine, 1,2-dichloroethane, and HCl. Cost Data – from the Chemical Market Reporter , August 17, 1998 Ethylene 0.215 \$/lb Chlorine 255 \$/short ton (0.128 \$/lb) Vinyl chloride 0.155 \$/lb Hydrogen chloride 320 \$/ton (0.16 \$/lb) From the 1996 Stanford Research Institute Yearbook : Acetylene 0.60 – 0.70 \$/lb MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) for Ethylene – obtained using the URL – www.ilpi.com/msds/ . The MSDS displayed below was copied from the Cornell University data base. Similarly, MSDSs can be obtained for chlorine, vinyl chloride, HCl, and acetylene.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
