# Calculate Volumetric Flow Rate Of Air To Furnace

Question

A mixture of fuel containing 0.470 mol CH4/mol, 0.300 mol C3H8/mol, and 0.230 mol C5H12/mol at 60.0°C and 137 kPa (gauge) enters a furnace at a rate of 95.0 L/min where it reacts with 15.4% excess air. Determine the volumetric flow rate of air to the furnace in SCFM (standard cubic feet per minute) by following the steps below. Assume that the gases behave ideally.

What is the molar flow rate of fuel entering the furnace?

What is the molar flow rate of CH4 entering the furnace?

What is the molar flow rate of C3H8 entering the furnace?

What is the molar flow rate of C5H12 entering the furnace?

What is the molar flow rate of the theoretical air required for the complete combustion of the fuel?

What is the actual molar flow rate of air added to the furnace?

What is the volumetric flow rate of air added to the furnace in standard cubic feet per minute?

Summary

The question belongs to Chemical Engineering and it discusses about calculating the volumetric flow rate of air to a furnace in SCFM.

Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
