Have you ever wondered what happens when a gun fires? I have been hunting for almost all my life and I have started to wonder about this. For my science fair project I 'm going to find the reaction of explosions. I also find this interesting because I want to make guns someday. I believe that understanding the Chemistry and Physics of explosions may help me to find the answer to my question.
Pure oxygen gas causes fuel almost to explode when it becomes remotely warm. Just remember that fuel doesn’t “blow up” in your cylinders: It expands and burns in a controlled manner. By bonding a pair of nitrogen atoms to an oxygen atom, oxygen isn’t allowed to burn the fuel until the cylinder becomes hot. The in-built safety mechanism in nitrous oxide means that its oxygen atoms are just assisting in fuel combustion, and not causing it before it should
Carter Crow 3/15/16 Diesel mechanics Rudolf Diesel who is best known for the invention of the engine that bears his name he was born in Paris France in 1858. diesels third test engine was used in the successful 1897 acceptance test 1 cylinder 4 stroke water cooled air injection of fuel output with 14.7 KW and and fuel consumption was 317g/k. it all started with a engine the size of a dirtbike engine and from there on the diesel engine has changed Americas industrial industry forever changing. they could haul heavier loads and run longer on less fuel and had 10 times as much torque as a gasoline engine The diesel engine is one of the most important parts of American industrial and Automotive History from its initial introduction
When invented, the scientists kept notes about how it caught on fire, burned several of them, and even burned their research center down. Even the most innocent use, fireworks, has resulted in thousands of deaths when factories have malfunctions and catch on fire, or worse, explode.
The longer the delay period, the higher is the rate of combustion and the higher is the resulting pressure rise. The rise in pressure inside the cylinder is attributed to the rate of combustion as well as the ignition delay period of the fuel, which in turn depends on the cetane index. The higher the value of the cetane index of the fuel, the shorter is the ignition delay period. Figure 53 demonstrates the variation of the in-cylinder peak pressure with speed for six different types of fuel. As it can be deduced, the peak pressure decreases with increasing the engine
Beamsplitter: quartz near IR e. Accessory: FT-Raman f. ATR Crystal: none g. Optical filter: holographic notch h. Aperture: open 8) Select the laser tab and click turn on diode 9) Press the shutter switch on the front of the Raman (to open) and turn the power to its highest,
The influences of equivalence ratio on the ignition delays of DME/air and n-butane/air mixtures were investigated at pressures of 2 and 10 atm. For the DME/air mixture, as shown in Fig. 3 (1), both experiment and simulation exhibit shorter ignition delay times under the fuel stoichiometric (= 1.0) condition than the fuel lean (= 0.5) condition from low to high temperatures, meaning that the ignition delay
The CO2 discharge during exhaust can be utilized in sequestration process. The supply of oxygen will be possible in the combustion chamber either by installing a separate cylinder for this purpose or by a system specially designed for extracting O2 from the atmospheric air. Result Based on above concept it is clear that when 100% oxygen is used for the combustion, it results in optimization of fuel economy and zero N2 emission in the atmosphere.
The RD-180 Engine The RD-180 engine utilises LO2 (Liquid Oxygen) and RP-1 (Rocket Propellant-1, a refined form of kerosene) as its fuel mixture, with a ratio of 2.72 for oxidiser to fuel . The RD-180 engine utilises a twin chamber design, which is fed by the commonly used turbopump configuration, allowing for the fuel and oxidisers to move out of the two chambers. The RD-180 engine uses an Oxygen rich pre-burner, which provides a greater fuel to thrust ratio, however, high pressure hot gasses must be transported within the engine, as seen in fig 2, which could lead failures within the
The reason that fuel also has made the diesel engine and the diesel production better is because there has been so many things that the world has invented to make less fuel miles and also can make you go through more fuel or less fuel. Diesel fuel is a bi produced of gas. The primary use of diesel fuel is in diesel engines. The invention of the diesel engine is credited to Rudolph Diesel, who filed the first diesel engine patent in 1892. His use of peanut oil (rather than a petroleum product) to fuel an engine--demonstrated at the 1889
but it’s hard to make it happen and make everyone to use it because it run slower and few distance than normal car. Now a day fuel is more expensive and most making carbon dioxide in human activity [ 1] and electric car is developed enough to run on the road like normal car that we can see on the road. Thesis Statement: The Electric car have several features that make it as the future of every car. Body1 Topic sentence: Electric car did not make pollution. Support idea: zero pollution Support detail: It use electrical energy instead of fuel that not making carbon dioxide to the air or any pollution to the nature.
The reduction of carbon emissions to the atmosphere, the cost of maintenance and refuelling and the safety of electric vehicles are surely convincing rationale for us to make changes. So, we all know that majority of people commonly utilise fuel, oil or LPG as a
With the increase of gas prices in the past couple years, cars with better fuel economy were in high demand. The hybrid car started to become popular because of its fuel economy. A hybrid cars fuel economy is in some cases twenty percent more than its gas counterparts. The hybrid car had several people changing their minds about gas cars. Numerous went out and bought a hybrid car because of the car’s fuel mileage in the hopes of saving money.
