Chemical Process Calculations, or Material Balances Question

  1. Dec 3, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data



    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution


    All of the related work is in the attachment. If you could please help it would be really appreciated. I've asked a bunch of people in my class, and they're confused also.

    Thanks in advance!

    Step 1: According to the ideal gas law, how many lb.-moles are there in 1 million standard cubic feet of a gas?
    Step 2: How many lb.-moles of each species are there in this amount of gas?
    Step 3: According to the ideal gas law, how many lb.-moles are there in 23 million standard cubic feet of a air?
    Step 4: How many lb.-moles of N2 and O2 are there in this amount of air?
    Step 5: Write a balanced reaction equation for the combustion of each component (reaction with oxygen) to yield water and CO2.
