MECH 6120: Combustion Homework: Due 8 October 2009 1. Acetylene (C 2 H 2 ) is burned with air in a well–stirred adiabatic reactor. The volume of the reactor is 0.05 m 3 , the pressure is 1 atm (101.32 kPa), and the reactants enter at 298 K with an equivalence ratio of 0.8. The rate at which the acetylene is burned can be approximated by the global rate law ω C 2 H 2
