## Homework Statement

An automobile traveling 50 Km/hr emits 0.1% CO from the exhaust. If the exhaust rate is 80 m^3/min, what is the CO emission in grams per kilometer?

## Homework Equations

PV=nrt

## The Attempt at a Solution

flow rate volume of CO =(.8m^3/min)8(1min/.833km)=.960m^3/km*(1000L/1m^3)=960 L/km

PV=nRT

n=((1atm)(960L/km))/((.08206 L*atm/mol*k)*(298K))=39.25 moles/km of CO

39.25moles/km * 28g/mole of CO = 1099.65 g/km
