Hi all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Would really appreciate some help on this problem I can't seem to figure out.

Brown coal has an energy content of 15MJ/kg, carbon content 65% by weight, burning in a 30% efficient steam power plant. Calculate the CO2 emission intensity (kg CO2 emitted/kWh delivered).Assume complete combustion where all the available carbon in the fuel is converted to carbon dioxide gas.

Thanks in advance :)
