Combustion reactions

Combustion Reactions

And Their Products


Combustion
Combustion

  • a chemical reaction that occurs in the presence of OXYGEN and the release of ENERGY


  • combustion reactions involve the burning of hydrocarbons an organic compound containing only carbons and hydrogen atoms



Combustion of methane gas
Combustion of Methane Gas

  • CH4 + O2CO2 + H2O

  • REACTANTS = PRODUCTS

  • Oxides produced are released into the atmosphere as emissions


Balancing hydrocarbon combustion reactions
Balancing Hydrocarbon Combustion Reactions

  • Start with the Carbons

  • Then the Hydrogens

  • Lastly balance the Oxygen's


Example
Example

  • CH4 + O2CO2 + H2O

  • 1CH4 + O21CO2 + H2O

  • 1CH4 + O21CO2 + 2H2O

  • 1CH4 + 2 O21CO2 + 2H2O


Importance of co 2
Importance of CO2

  • Photosynthesis

  • Cellular Respiration

  • Greenhouse Gas

  • Global warming

  • Increase CO2 , increases temperatures

  • Carbon Cycle


Examples
Examples

  • C2H6+ O2 CO2 + H2O

  • C5H12 + O2 CO2 + H2O

  • C4H8 + O2 CO2 + H2O

  • C4H10 + O2 CO2 + H2O

  • Combustion of C8H18


Carbon monoxide
Carbon Monoxide

  • CO (g) is another common product of combustion

  • Carbon monoxide is produced when there is an incomplete combustion.

  • When the quantity of oxygen is limited

  • Automobile emissions


Problems with c arbon monoxide
Problems with carbon monoxide

  • inhaling – competes with the oxygen molecule on the hemoglobin

  • thus, decreases the availability of oxygen to your body

  • Furnace in your home - CO detectors


Oxides of sulfur
Oxides of Sulfur

  • product of burning fuels

  • Coal

  • Crude oil

  • tar sands

  • natural gas




Flaring process
Flaring Process hydrogen sulphide

  • H2S + O2SO2 + H2O

  • SO2 + O2SO3

  • sulfur dioxide

  • sulfur trioxide


Facts
Facts hydrogen sulphide

  • Burning coal in Alberta contains less sulfur than the coal burned in eastern Canada

  • emissions of SO2also comes from the refining of metal ores (nickle)


Oxides of nitrogen
Oxides of hydrogen sulphideNITROGEN

  • 78.1 % of earth’s atmosphere contains N2 (nitrogen gas)

  • N2 + O2 2NO

  • 2NO + O2 2 NO2

  • These are commonly referred to Nox compounds


Common sources of no x
Common Sources of hydrogen sulphideNOx

  • High temperature combustion processes

  • above 650 ‘c

  • Automobiles

  • Furnaces


Monitoring emissions in alberta
