Q.If a power plant burning 10,000 metric tons of coal per day with 10% excess air emits stack gas containing 100 ppm by volume of NO, what is the daily output of NO? (Assume coal is pure C).

The attempt at a solution:

A. C + O2 → CO2

(10000 metric tons of C) / 12.0108 g/mol x (1/1) x (44.0096 g/mol) x (100/ 1000000) = 3.66 metric tons of NO

Please can someone check this is correct for me. If incorrect please show me. Thanks,

Ed
