5310: Combustion Fundamentals Homework #2 STANJAN or NASA CEA Practice Problem: Consider combustion of a methane-air mixture at 10 atm (both fuel and air are at 10 atm). a. Plot mole fractions, χ i , for the species CO 2 , CO, H 2 O, H 2 , OH, O 2 , N 2 , NO vs. temperature for φ =1 for a temperature range from 1,000 to 2,500 K. b. Calculate T flame and mole fractions as a function of φ for adiabatic combustion. Plot these results vs. φ and discuss at what value the peak flame temperature occurs. Comment on this value in light of the discussion found in Chapter 1, Part 2 of Glassman. c. Compare T flame from part (2) to what would be obtained assuming complete oxidation (burning in only oxygen) and what would be obtained assuming complete combustion (burning in air). Problems from Turns: Complete questions: 4-6, 4-7, 4-10, 4-11, 4-12, 4-13, 4-16, 4-17, 4-20 Problems (these problems are from Glassman Chapter 2): 1: For a temperature of 1,000 K, calculate the pre-exponential factor in the specific reaction rate constant for: 1. any simple bimolecular reaction 2. any simple unimolecular decomposition reaction following transition state theory. Complete this problem using the collision model described in Section B, part 1. To complete this problem it will be necessary to estimate the average molecular diameter, d 2 AB using a simple kinetic theory approach for viscosity assuming a Maxwellian distribution: 2 2 1 1 d mkT π π μ = 1.1 Also note that μ AB (the reduced mass, not the viscosity as given above) can be approximated as 30. Note that this problem can also be completed using reaction rate theory for reactions between

### 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.
