Sample Text:
The methanol is poisonous and is added to prevent the methylated spirits being used as cheap drinking alcohol. Ethanol's formula is C 2 H 5 OH. Its boiling point is 78.5 deg C, and its melting point is -117.3 deg C. Methanol's formula is CH 3 OH. Its boiling point is 64.6 deg C, and its melting point is -97 deg C. ethanol + oxygen → carbon dioxide + water + energy C 2 H 5 OH(l) + 3O 2 (g) → 2CO 2 (g) + 3H 2 O(l) methanol + oxygen → carbon dioxide + water 2CH 3 OH(l) + 3O 2 (g) → 2CO 2 (g) + 4H 2 O(l) The aim of this experiment was to determine the effects of Methanol on Ethanol and why 5% is the recommendation of retail Methylated Spirits. To do this, the energy produced by burning methylated spirits of different percentages would need to be calculated. The energy or enthalpy produced by burning fuel can be calculated wi...
