Gas automobiles run by burning hydrocarbons (Octane in gas). using your knowledge of the gas laws describe what is happening to the temperature and pressure inside of each cylinder as the car runs. which type of reactions is that. what are always the products in this type of reaction? what might be the greatest environmental impact of this?
The burning (combustion) of gas (octane gas) inside the engine produce gaseous products and energy in the for heat
2C8H18 (g) + 25O2 (g) --------> 16CO2 (g) + 18H2O(g)
The common gases produced are CO2 and H2O.
27 moles of gas are consumed and 34 moles are produced. As a result the pressure increases. The temperature of the gas also increases due to the heat released. The CO2 and H2O are both IR active gases i.e, absorb IR radiations. This leads to global warming.
