Today I will give answers to your What is the fuel value of ethane, c2h6, in kilojoules per gram of ethane? the question, and some new ones that you might not have thought of yet. It doesn’t matter if you’re a student or someone who likes to know the answer before they ask – this blog post is for you! I’m going to start by answering some common questions first, and we’ll go from there.
Question: What is the fuel value of ethane, c2h6, in kilojoules per gram of ethane?
C = 2 H = 12 O = 8 F=16 P=32, so replace the variables with this to find ethane’s fuel value. 2 x 2 × 3 × 13 – 41 kilojoules per gram of ethane. You’ll notice that numbers are not added up in the answer, but instead multiplied together depending on their multipliers. The product can then be converted into grams/kilojoules per liter by dividing the result by 1000. For grams/kilojoules per liter you divide by 1000 and for kilocalories (a unit of heat energy) you divide by 100- which makes kelvin (the unit of temperature)/”c” equal 1000000000/(KJ). As
For ethane, the heat that is released as a result of combustion is 2068 kJ. So it would be 23.45253 kilojoules per gram of ethane. Unfortunately, converting the answer to kilograms of fuel based on density and specific gravity isn’t possible because there’s not enough information provided in the question and about ethane on Wikipedia. Hopefully, someone can fill me in more! It would be cool if we could all make sure we know these sorts of things for our
Ethane is not used as fuel. Ethane is a chemical constituent of natural gas, but it also occurs in petroleum. Hydrogen can be extracted from ethane via fossil-fuel cracking or catalytic cracking methods, and its potential use in the future was studied by ExxonMobil in the 1990s before research on hydrogen cars began to take off.
A kilojoule (kJ) is a unit of energy. The fuel value of gases like ethane can vary based on the density per volume, i.e., the number of molecules in a cubic meter or liter per unit time. Ethane is an unreactive gas with an atomic mass of less than 20 g/mol, which makes it one thousand times lighter than air at one-atmosphere pressure and temperature, so its molecular weight isn’t critically important to know for this calculation.
Calculating the energy content of any gas requires knowing how many molecules are present in each cubic meter or liter that contains them, as well as their specific heat capacity at constant pressure. The average molar mass M(V)
