How much of the energy in gasoline or diesel fuel is converted to work in propelling the car and how much into heat released into the atmosphere?
Gasoline engines convert about 30 percent of the fuel's energy content into mechanical work, diesel engines about 45 percent. The rest is heat rejected in the radiator cooling or in the exhaust, or to heat the car interior in cold weather.
Chemical Energy into Mechanical Energy
Where the Energy Goes: Gasoline Vehicles.Only about 12%–30% of the energy from the fuel you put in a conventional vehicle is used to move it down the road, depending on the drive cycle.The rest of the energy is lost to engine and driveline inefficiencies or used to power accessories.
well im not sure if this is right but i think it is yeshaa haa this is jablutoo ily ily lol
That is, only about 20 percent of the thermal-energy content of the gasoline is converted into mechanical work.
Most of the chemical energy of the gasoline burned in a car is not used to move the car but is changed into what?
Heat energy is mostly produced - and wasted.
If it was just exposed not run for a while just replacing the fuel filter draning the carb or fuel injectiors, and running a gas additive in your fuel for a bit so it will break down any diesel that is left
if it is only a small amount of diesel (say no more than a gallon) them all you have to do is fill the take right up to the brim with gasoline, it may have a small misfire while it runs the diesel through the system as it will have a much lower octane, If there is quite a bit of diesel in there (...
Currently, the majority of motor vehicles worldwide are powered by gasoline or diesel.Other energy sources include ethanol, biodiesel, propane, compressed natural gas (CNG), electric batteries charged from an external source, and hydrogen.
A mixture of fuel (such as petrol/unleaded gasoline, diesel, LPG or CNG, E85, etc.) and air.
With a complete combustion or fission, approx.8 kWh of heat can be generated from 1 kg of coal, approx.12 kWh from 1 kg of mineral oil and around 24,000,000 kWh from 1 kg of uranium-235.Related to one kilogram, uranium-235 contains two to three million times the energy equivalent of oil or coal.
The chemical energy (the fuel) turns into kinetic energy (the car moving) and heat energy(given off by burning fuel).
Gasoline or diesel. In some rare engines ethanol is burned, of a mixture of gasoline and ethanol.Coming up with this answer would've been easier than posting this question here.If this is for your homework, then try actually using your brain, that's what this is about. Not wether you finished it ...
kinetic energy is created
The main reason is that the way Diesel and Gasoline engines works is complete different, the gasoline needs a spark to explode and generate movement. The diesel explodes with pressure, the pressure of the fuel on the cylinder is what makes the explosion, so in a diesel engine you don't need an el...
Propulsion:Theroy says that most internal combustion engines loose 1/3 of the energy in turning the engine, 1/3 in heat loss out the tail pipe and 1/3 to move the car.This is better today than back in the 1970s but not by much, but it doesn't have to be much to make a meaningfull difference!
The reason diesel is used in a lot of larger equipment is because diesel engines get better gas milage, and have more torqe or towing power. Its not used in smaller cars because they are very loud and the exhaust is a lot more harmful to the enviroment.
Internal combustion reactions power the car. The gasoline ignites, and the spark creates the power for the car.
In the US alone cars released 314 million metric tons in 2004. The rest of the world is about the same amount all together because they don't drive as far or as much as we do. By those rates its almost 2 million metric tons a day.
the nuclear reactor makes steam wich drives turbines wich drive generators that make the electricity
You cannot obtain the energy as it is anti-matter.
When you burn gasoline in a car's engine you produce energy to move the car plus energy in the form of?
The energy produced from the detonation of vaporized petroleum transfers generally in two methods.1. Kinetic energy : The explosion triggered from the chemical reaction of the combustion of hydrocarbons, and the resulting breakdown of the hydrocarbon chain releases several gasses and unburnt hydr...
Gasoline isn't changed into energy, because it is matter, and matter only changes form (it turns into carbon monoxide among other things). However, if what you are asking is, what kind of energy is produced when gasoline is burned in an engine, then you get kinetic energy (the heat builds pressur...
What other property is required of a car radiator other than ability to transfer heat energy and being light?
Resistance to flexing and vibration and corrosion and electrolysis.
Same tool for all fires, fire extinguisher, CO2 would be ideal, H20 would be a BIG MISTAKE
It's done through a process called nuclear fission, where uranium atoms are split into smaller atoms to produce electricity.The potential power locked inside a uranium atom is mind-boggling.1 kg of coal will give you 8 kWh of heat, whereas 1 kg of uranium-235 will create a ridiculous 24,000,000 kWh.
When you drive your car or ride your bike, energy is converted and some of the energy is lost as heat. That is why cars have radiator to prevent overheating.
No. Never do this. You risk premature ignition (also known as detonation) in the cylinders if it cycles through.Safer to use kerosene. 10% to 50% kerosene added to diesel depending on ambient temperature.
Even the most efficient petrol engines are quite inefficient at changing the chemical energy in the fuel to kinetic energy. Most becomes heat and some turns into sound. Somewhere in the region of 25% becomes turning force into the transmission.
The energy production of a solar panel is dependent on its material, size, efficiency, and a few other factors.A typical, 250 watt solar panel will produce around 30-42.5 kWh of AC per month.To be safe, let's take the minimum to give us a conservative estimate.
Sun -> plants -> animals -> oil -> fuel -> tank. This is just a basic answer until someone gives a more in-depth one.
According to an article on yahoo http://green.yahoo.com/blog/greenpicks/191/saving-gas-isn-t-just-for-tree-huggers-anymore.html Turning your vehicle off and on equals only 6 seconds of idleing.
The best tool to extinguish a small gasoline or diesel fire is a portable fire extinguishertrue or false?
True, provided that the extinguisher is the proper type. An ABC dry chemical extinguisher would be the best extinguisher to use.
It turns out the current price for a gallon of premium gas is currently at $3.39 and for a gallon of regular gas is $2.71. diesal??????? it is $2.31. but if you think about it...it would cost you more gas to go to Mexico to fill your tank up then return home rather then paying for uour local gas ...
As of 2/17/2011 the price was 9.01 pesos per liter. converting pesos to dollars (with a 12.02 exchange rate) and liters to gallons makes it $2.80 per gallon.From what CNN reported this morning, 4/23/2008 0645_hrs. the current price of diesel in Mexico was a staggering $2.33 Per Gal. that's over h...
A car engine, also called an internal combustion engine, changes potential chemical energy stored in gasoline into thermal energy and then into kinetic mechanical energy.When gasoline burns it reacts with oxygen to produce carbon dioxide and water vapor.The energy is released in the form of heat ...
Depends on the API gravity. During the summer, diesel will weigh between 6.951 (API 38) and 7.076 (API 35) pounds per gallon. Last winter, the diesel weighed around 7.206 (API 32) pounds per gallon. You can do the math to convert this to metric.
Every gallon of gasoline burned creates about 8,887 grams of CO2, and there are one million grams per metric ton.
99 ford Taurus that is over heating and the heat does not work inside the car and coolant leaks out of the overflow?
Sounds like no coolant flow to me.Check for missing water pump belt or stuck thermostat, but not as likely as:Most likely is cracked or dislodged water pump impeller. Replace the water pump.
According to data released on Aug.24 by the U.S.Energy Information Agency (EIA), renewable energy in the U.S.through the first half of 2016, including hydro-electric power, biomass, geothermal, wind, and solar (including distributed solar), provided 16.9 percent of electricity generation.
Some cars can and have been made into convertibles. Consult a reputable body shop to see if your car can be so converted.
un burnt fuel is lost out the tail-pipe.
a gas tank leak jb weld work good if your leaking else where because of high pressures very flamable consult your local shop very dangerous!
it is wasted as heat and causes pollution basically
I assume you are asking about oil and how much total oil we have left in the world.In the United States we have roughly 400 years or so (at current use rates) of oil reserves that we currently know about. Most of that is on the Green river formation which takes up all of Colorado, Wyoming and Uta...
Ken Mattson, owner of Len's Automotive in Bellevue, Wash., says a car heater can stop working for a number of reasons, including: A low antifreeze/water level in the radiator due to a leak in the cooling system.A bad thermostat that isn't allowing the engine to properly warm up.
Why does your air conditioner or heat squeal when you turn them on The air and the heat are both working but there is an awful noise?
You've got trouble with your heater fan - or the motor that turns it. Same fan for both heat and AC.
Cost to fix a car heater Most heating-related repairs range from $300 to $1,000, he says, but it's difficult to pinpoint an exact number because of the variety of problems that exist.A decrease in the coolant level or a leak in the coolant system is one of the more common problems, Mattson says.
What is wrong if there is a smell of fuel in the cabin of the car and a small amount of fuel close to the injectors and the fuel economy of the car has dropped?
Hey, have you checked all the hoses that are relative to the fuel system? One of them might have a split, or it might be a case of tightening up a few clamps around the engine bay. Good luck.
It depends on what year, make and model but for the most part the vehicles built since the 1990's are a sealed/closed system. Water can get in via contaminated fuel from gas station and also a small amount can accumulate from condensation. Regular use of a quality dry gas additive is always a goo...
I don't believe that NASCAR is using ethanol. I know F1 race cars use it.
How long of process would converting a 2X4 truck to a 4wd truck and about how much as in going to a junkyard and parting out another 4X4?
I have done this particular conversion. It is rather more involved than you would think, and unless the truck is of considerable collector or sentimental value, not worth the effort. Buy a 4X4.
It is right around $2.00 per gallon.
Could be,Low on coolant,Plugged heater core,Faulty temp blend door actuator,
Yes you can use diesel to clean parts but you must remember it will not completely dry like other solvents. Will leave a oily film
The Alternator outputs AC voltage which is converted to DC voltage. The battery stores DC voltage. The engine and all electronics run on 12 volts DC. The spark plugs fire with thousands of DC volts that are produced by the coils. It is all electrical energy.
It depends on many things. In RC racing, A quart of fuel would last anywhere from 60 minutes of running time to 90 minutes, depending on motor size, vehicle , engine tune (rich or lean)., etc.I race RC off road 1/8 scale and qualifiers are usually 5 to 7 minutes and "A" mains are usually 30 to 45...
When a car has been sitting in the heat is it good or bad to open a window while using your AC - to 'vent' the heat?
It is always better to roll down the windows. One thing is it will let the hot air out very quickly and thus allow the inside to cool quickly. Also when heated up the car dashboard and the airfreshners produce toxic benzene, which if inhaled can cause serious health hazards. So keeping the window...
For use as an engine lubricant - no.Not a good idea and why would you?
1994 Ford Taurus when you put it into gear it kicks in but slowly moves into drive and rarely works in reverse is it the transmission or possibly a sensor or could it be the gears?
You have a 12 year old transmission that is in serious need of service. Have the fluid and filter changed and see where you stand after that. If the problems still persists, take it to a professional.
Yes, but there may be blockage in the cooling system which could cause your car to overheat.
If the check engine light is on, or has been on, have the codes read, they may help lead you to the problem.
Well i have heard of a centurion classic(four door bronco) to have dual tanks of 35 and 40 gallon tank but i think that was a special order from the conversion company
Currently, Top Fuel and Funny Cars run on a blend that's 90 percent nitromethane and 10 percent methanol, according to NHRA rules [source: Davis].The methanol helps suppress detonation, which makes the fuel more stable.
It depends.The most common source is chemical energy, in the shape of Gasoline or Diesel refined from petroleum, a fossil fuel.You can have electric energy too, but as long as that electricity is coming from the combustion of fossil fuels this isn't really much of an improvement.Then there are bi...
i came to this website to learn this not answer it!!
A leaking injector/ injector cup is most likely the cause. A less likely cause would be a cracked head.
Extract a small amount of the suspect fuel using a hand-operated bilge pump.Place the fuel in a clear, clean glass container and allow it to sit in a dark place for 24 hours.Diesel is lighter than water so if there is water in the fuel, it will settle to the bottom of the jar.
Assuming this vehicle is fuel injected, you can do a leak down test.
That would depend on the price of the fuel
Diesel is a fuel that is used in cars and stored in tanks.Gasoline / Petrol is another fuel that is used in cars and stored in tanks.

How do you bypass the heating block on your 91 Carmaro It leaked into passenger side but you don't need heat in car - only use in warm weather?
drain the cooling system, follow the hoses from the water pump, find the one that goes into the firewall, disconnect it and there should be one right next to it coming out of the firewall, disconnect that one as well and use a standard plumbing fitting to join the two hoses, refill the cooling sy...
That varies dependent on the capacity of the vehicle's tank.
The world has 53.3 years of oil left at the current rate of production, according to BP's annual statistical review of world energy.Just 53 years! From the report: Total world proved oil reserves reached 1687.9 billion barrels at the end of 2013, sufficient to meet 53.3 years of global production.

Sounds like an oil leak some where on the left side of your engine and burning on the hot exhaust manifold. Check for oil leaks on the left side of your engine.
Electric car's are constantly getting better. A lot of them are already more efficent then gasoline vehicles. As battery technology and public awareness of electric cars increase so will the production of electric vehicles causing a decrease in production of gasoline vehicles.
