Unformatted text preview: 5.2. STOICHIOMETRY 157 Solving, one finds 1 2 3 4 = 1 3 7 6 2 3 = 1 3 7 6 2 3 1 , R 1 . (5.59) Again, one finds a non-unique solution in the right null space of . If one chooses = 6, then one gets 1 2 3 4 = 2 7 4 6 , (5.60) which corresponds to the stoichiometrically balanced reaction 2 C 2 H 6 + 7 O 2 4 CO 2 + 6 H 2 O. (5.61) In this example, is dimensionless. Example 5.5 Consider stoichiometric balance for a propane oxidation reaction which may produce carbon monox- ide and hydroxyl in addition to carbon dioxide and water. The hypothesized reaction takes the form 1 C 3 H 8 + 2 O 2 3 CO 2 + 4 CO + 5 H 2 O + 6 OH. (5.62) In terms of net stoichiometric coefficients, this becomes 1 C 3 H 8...
