Chapter 8, Problem 65QAP
Textbook Problem

Natural gas companies in the United States use the "therm" as a unit of energy. One therm is 1 × 10 5 BTU.

(a) How many joules are in one therm? ( 1 J = 9.48 × 10 4 BTU )

(b) When propane gas, C3H8, is burned in oxygen, CO2 and steam are produced. How many therms of energy are given off by 1.00 mol of propane gas?
