One mole of carbon monoxide and 0.5 moles of oxygen are ignited at 298.15 K and 1 atm. The reaction is

CO + 0.5 O2 ? CO2

The combustion products undergo dissociation and contain CO2, CO, O and O2.
  • The equilibrium composition is found by minimizing the Gibbs Energy of the combustion products (formulated as a series of equations constructed via the method of Lagrange multipliers)
  • The adiabatic flame temperature is found by balancing the enthalpy of the reactants against the enthalpy of the products
The resulting equations are solved numerically to give the adiabatic flame temperature and equilibrium composition of the mixture.
