Unformatted text preview: downtown Detroit. a. Estimate how much fuel (gallons) Michael Reagan used on his trip. Assume that each of the three engines could produce 500 horsepower and were operated at 75% throttle for 12.6 hours. b. If the engines were replaced with diesel engines, Caterpiller 3208s used by Norris and Payton, how much fuel would they be expected to use on this trip? 2. a. If C 8 H 18 is combusted with the theoretical, stoichiometric or chemically correct (all are the same, different names) amount of air, calculate the air-fuel ratio on a mass basis. b. If 125% amount of air is used for a reaction with the same fuel, calculate the “equivalence ratio” for this reaction. c. Calculate the air-fuel ratio for the stoichiometric combustion of ethanol, C 2 H 5 OH....
