1 Due: January 23, 2009 MAE 112 Winter 2009 Homework Assignment #2 1. Consider a rocket engine that uses liquid oxygen and liquid ethanol (C 2 H 5 OH) fuel aka ethyl alcohol. The oxygen mass-flow rate is 2.00 times greater than the fuel mass- flow rate. Ethanol is stored at 298K while the oxygen is stored at 85K just very slightly below its boiling point. Oxygen has a heat of vaporization of 6.81kJ/mole while the value for ethanol is 38.6 kJ/mole. The heat of formation of liquid ethanol is -277.0 kJ/mole. The specific heat at constant pressure for gaseous oxygen is 30.77 joules/mole K. The liquids are sprayed into the combustion chamber. (a) How much energy per mole is required to vaporize and heat a mole of oxygen to the temperature of 298K. (b) What is the expected ideal flame temperature? The ideal flame temperature aka theoretical flame temperature is the value with no dissociation. Assume that the products are H 2 O, CO 2 , and CO. You should make this calculation without using the online computer code.

### 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.

• 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.
