I have emailed my Prof and TA about this to no avail. If someone could guide me through the problem, it would be most appreciated. I have attempted this numerous times, but seem to be getting nowhere. Last edited by ends; Oct 25th 2015 at 07:05 AM.

I know the chemical reaction of interest is CO + 1/2O2 ----> CO2 I can do the math work, but it's just a matter of interpreting the question. A) You use the enthalpy at 298 to find it at 773. Then from 773 you integrate up to the adiabatic flame temp and solve a quadratic. And you're supposed to use the volume ratios to find the mole ratios in order to integrate. B) Not too sure what to do here, but I know the exhaust gas is CO2 and N2. C) Seems similar to A, but you have to take away 300J and then find a new flame temp.
