Heat released by fuel = -3.3 x 10 4 J c. The assumption made is that all heat released by the fuel is absorbed by the water, and no heat is lost to the container or other surroundings. In reality, more heat is released by the fuel than is absorbed by the water. Some of the released heat is absorbed by the container, etc. 8. a. 70% isooctane: 30% heptane b. Gas with an octane number of 87 would burn more smoothly than gas with an octane number of 70. The higher the octane number, the higher the antiknock characteristics. This is because a higher octane rating means there is a larger percentage of branched alkanes to straight-chain alkanes within the fuel. Branched alkanes burn more slowly, and thus, more evenly than their straight-chain counterparts. Straight-chain alkanes burn rapidly and, as

a result, engines may “ping” or “knock” when burning fuels containing high amounts of straight-chain alkanes. 9. Tetraethyl Lead was added prior to the mid-1970s. Its use was banned because lead was released into the atmosphere—leading to an array of environmental and health problems. Methyl tertiary-butyl ether (MTBE) was introduced in the late 1970s and used until high levels of MTBE were found in groundwater and drinking water supplies (in the late 1990s). Even when present at levels low enough to be considered “safe,” this contaminant imparts water with an unpleasant taste and odor. 10.

    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.
