The calorific value and ignition temperature of fuel A are 55 kJ/g and 80°C, respectively. These values for fuel B are 80 kJ/g and 10°C, respectively. On burning, the fuel A produces CO2 and H2O while the fuel B produces CO2 , CO and SO2. Give three points of relative and disadvantages of these two fuels.
Advantages of fuel 'A'.
1.It has a moderate ignition temperature.
2. It does not produce any harmful gases.
1. It has a low calorific value and produces less heat per unit mass.
Advantage of fuel 'B':
1. It has a high calorific value and hence generates more heat.
1. It has a very low ignition temperature and hence is unsafe to use.
2. It produces harmful gases, such as CO and SO2.
