Find the calorific value of fuel, given emission data

  1. Jul 24, 2013 #1
    I have data from exhaust gas analyzer, and I have to find the calorific value or the heating value of that particular fuel using that data. Can anyone show me how to do that please.
    Or if there is any other way to find the calorific value of fuel.
    The data is in the attached pic

    Welcome to PF!

    You can use that data to generate the formula for the chemical reaction using the ratios of the products.
