Example: A gas-turbine uses C8H18(liquid) for fuel and 300% excess air.

The air and fuel enter at 77 °F, and the products leave at 1100 °F. The output of the engine and the fuel consumption are measured, and it is found that the specific fuel consumption is one pound of fuel per horsepower-hour. Determine the heat transfer from the engine per pound mole of fuel. Assume complete combustion.
