[Thermodynamic Application] Convert emision factor => units of grams/joule

  • #1

Homework Statement


Hello everybody,
Can you help me solve this:
Coal-burning power plants convert the sulfur in the coal to sulfur dioxide
(SO2), a regulated air pollutant. The maximum allowable SO2 emission for new
power plants (i.e., the maximum allowed ratio of the mass of SO2 emitted per
input of fuel energy) is 0.80 lbm/(million Btu). Convert this emission factor to
units of grams per joule!

Thanks for the response :)

You have to show your attempts at solving the question to receive help. This is a forum policy.

For sure you were show some method of unit conversion, most likely some variant of dimensional analysis, with multiplying given number by conversion factors that cancel to 1. Have you tried to apply it to the question?
