Hi to all,

Please let me know how the following equations are arrived

Stoichometric air lb/lb of fuel = 11.53*C + 34.34*(H2 - (O2/8)) + 4.29*S - Equation-1

Stoichometric air lb/10kbtu = 144*((8.01*C + 23.86*(H2 - (O2/8)) + 3*S)/(HHV) - Eq.-2

sir,

i couldn't understand how the second equation arrived. i.e. 144*((8.01*C + 23.86*(H2 - (O2/8)) + 3*S)/(HHV)

This equation is know as Dulong Formula for qualification of fuel

note : You need to pay attention to the units  .

Hope this helps you out.

Dulong formula.(accuracy 2-3%)

HHV (Btu/lb) = 14,544 *C+62,028 *(H2-(O2/8))+4050*S

HHV (higher heating value); C:mass fraction of Carbon,.....H2 mass fraction of Hydrogen, O2 mass fraction of Oxygen and S mass fraction of sulfur.

Hope this helps

Give us reference where you got that equation from

Check attached copy.

ya, you are right Mr.Shivasankar, It should be devided by 100, but i am not understanding how this 144 comes, is this a common product of all constituents.
