er 11: Combustion (Updated 5/31/10) Chapter 11: Combustion(Thanks to David Bayless for his assistance in writing this section) Introduction - Up to this point the heat Q in all problems and examples was either a given value or was obtained from the First Law relation. However in various heat engines, gas turbines, and steam power plants the heat is obtained from combustion processes, using either solid fuel (e.g. coal or wood). liquid fuel (e.g. gasolene, kerosine, or diesel fuel), or gaseous fuel (e.g. natural gas or propane). In this chapter we introduce the chemistry and thermodynamics of combustion of generic hydrocarbon fuels - (CxHy), in which the oxydizer is the oxygen contained in atmospheric air. Note that we will not cover the combustion of solid fuels or the complex blends and mixtures of the hydrocarbons which make up gasolene, kerosene, or diesel fuels. Atmospheric Air contains approximately 21% oxygen (O2) by volume. where z is known as the stoichiometric coefficient for the oxidizer (air)

- Maggie's Earth Adventures How to make the bass in your car sound its best A pair of Kenwood subs in a Sound Ordnance enclosure One of the things I like most about subwoofers is that I can feel the musical emotion directly with my body. The low frequency beat often forces me to dance around, or, at the very least, nod my head along with the rhythm. That's why we all like music in the first place — it moves us. It can take a little time and effort to get the exact bass sound you want from your subs, but the rewards of a well-tuned subwoofer system are overwhelmingly cool and physically satisfying. First, set your speaker level Step 1 Keep in mind, distortion is the enemy: it destroys speakers, subs, and eardrums. With the amp gain set low, play some music and turn up your receiver's volume until you hear the music distorting; then back off the volume until the music sounds clean again. Now, turn the amp's gain up until you hear distortion again; then back off the gain slightly until the distortion goes away. Now you're ready for some bass Blending it all together
