33. The exhaust gases from a furnace give the following Orsat analysis: 13.6% CO 2, 2.4% CO, 2.8 O2, and 81.2% N2. If the fuel
used is hydrocarbon, identify the fuel.
A. C2H6
B. CH2
C. C2H2
D. C2H4
34. Pure carbon is burned with theoretical amount of air for complete combustion in lb moles, 80% carbon burns, one-half of which
formed CO2 and the rest CO. The percentage of CO2, CO, and O2 in the combustion gases are respectively:
A. 33.3, 33.3, 33.3
B. 8.1, 8.1, 8.1
C. 4.8, 8.1, 12.2
D. 81, 4.0, 12.0
35. A furnace completely burns coal containing 80% C. Analysis of the fuel gas shows 14.5% CO 2, 3.76% O2, and no CO. What is
the percentage of the net hydrogen in the coal?
A. 6.37%
B. 8.90%
C. 10.12%
D. 14.25%
36. A sample of lignite was found to contain 34.55% moisture, 22.91% FC, 7.2% ash, 1.1% S, and 0.57% N with a calorific value of
16.45 MJ/kg. Calculate % C in the VCM.
A. 49.09%
B. 46.15%
C. 65.76%
D. 55.40%
37. A furnace is fired with coal with the following proximate analysis: 5% M, 60% FC, 25% VCM and 10% ash. Its calorific value is
31.33 MJ/kg. Calculate the % C lost in the refuse if the refuse analyses 25% FC, 4% VCM, 79.6% ash.
A. 4.59
B. 5.1
C. 2.25
D. 3.54
38. A furnace burns coal containing 4.1% M, 24% VCM, 63% FC, 1.2% N, 1.18% S, and 8.9% ash. Determine the percentage of the
heating value lost in the refuse if it analyses 24% FC and 76% ash. Its calorific value is 32MJ/kg.
A. 2.42%
B. 2.97%
C. 3.54%
D. 4.23%
39. A fumace is fired with coal containing 6% moisture,18% VCM, 67% FC and 9% ash. The refuse analysis shows 5% VCM, 23%
FC and 62% ash. The higher heating value of the coal as fired is 14,300 Btu/lb. Calculate the percentage of the heating value of the
coal that is lost in the refuse. Assume that the moisture in the refuse is due to the wetting down to prevent dusting and not moisture
from the original coal.
A. 4.68%
B. 7.02%
C. 9.36%
D. 15.0%
