Crude petroleum oil is generally considered to be formed from animal and vegetable debris accumulating in sea basins or
estuaries and decomposed by anaerobic bacteria resulting in a black viscous product. A typical elemental analysis shows 80%
C, 13% H, 1% N, 3% O, and 3% S. During a certain combustion, air supplied is less than the theoretical so that all of the 𝑂2 is
used up. 70% of the C burns to 𝐶𝑂2 , the rest to CO; the molal ratio of CO to 𝐻2 in the exhaust gas is 1:2. Assume that the
Sulfur in the fuel burns to 𝑆𝑂2 and the Nitrogen combines with the nitrogen from air. Calculate:
a) Orsat analysis of the exhaust gas
b) % of the theoretical air which is supplied for combustion
c) Equivalence Ratio
