A furnace dedicated to paper (assume pure cellulose, C6H10O5) operates at 15 tons/hour, at 100% cess air. _How much air is required?

To determine

The quantity of air required for the operation.

Explanation of Solution

Write the stoichiometric equation for cellulose pyrolysis.

  C6H10O5+6O26CO2+5H2O

Write the equation to calculate the rate of oxygen required.

  mO2=mpaperMpaper×6×MO2   ...... (I)

Here, the rate of flow of oxygen is mO2 , rate of flow of paper is mpaper , the molecular weight of oxygen is MO2 , and the molecular weight of oxygen is Mpaper .

Calculate the molecular weight of paper.

  Mpaper=(6×12+10+5×16)g/mol=162g/mol

Substitute 15ton/h for m
