23.2 Question: » What is the condition of the products for maximum heat transfer? Answer: » T prod T surr : home furnace, for example (useful to know for maximum heating value) Energy Balance for Reacting Systems
23.3 Example 23.1 Given: Ethane, C 2 H 6 , is burned completely with 30% excess air. The reactants are initially @ 298 K and 1 atm. Find: What is the maximum heat release from the reaction chamber? 30% excess air Products Ethane, C 2 H 6 at 298 K, 1 atm at T prod =T react 1 atm Q max

23.4 Continue Example 23.1 Assumptions: » SSSF » ΔKE = ΔPE = 0 » No work, W = 0 » Constant pressure » Products and reactants are ideal gases Solution: » Stoichiometric combustion reaction: C 2 H 6 + a (O 2 + 3.76 N 2 ) → b CO 2 + c H 2 O + d N 2
23.5 Continue Example 23.1 Continue Solution: » Stoichiometric atom balances: C: 2 = b → b = 2 H: 6 = 2 c → c = 3 O: 2 a = 2 b + c = 7 → a = 3.5 N: 2 a · 3.76 = 2 d → d = 13.16
