## Cellulose is to be burned in a waste-to- energy fadlity. The chemical equation for cellulose C6 H10O5is the atomic weights of C, H, and O are 12, 1, and 16. respectively. a. Calculate the stoichiometric oxygen necessary for the combustion of cellulose. b. Calculate stoichiometric air.

To determine

(a)

The stoichiometric oxygen necessary for the combustion of cellulose.

### Explanation of Solution

Given:

The chemical equation for cellulose is C6H10O5 .

The atomic weights of C, H and O are 12 , 1 and 16 respectively.

Calculation:

Write the unbalanced equation for the combustion of cellulose.

C6H10O5+O2CO2+H2O

Balance the equation.

C6H10O5+6O26CO2+5H2O

Calculate the mass of cellulose.

c=(6×12gm)+(10×1gm)+(5×16gm)=162gm

Here, the mass of cellulose is c

To determine

(b)

The stoichiometric air.
