Q.3.(a) What are the difference between gross and net calorific value ? 5
        (b) A coal has the following composition by weight:
C= 90%, O = 3.0, S =0.5% and ash = 2.5%. Net calorific value of the coal was Found to be 8490.5 kcal/kg. Calculate the percentage of hydrogen and higher Calorific value of coal.? 10
       (c) How the calorific value of coal can be determined by Bomb calorimeter ?  5
Q.4.(a) Write the significance & determination of proximate analysis of coal.?  5
(b) A Sample of coal was analysis as follow:
2.5 gm sample of coal was weighed in a silica crucible after heating for 60 minutes at 110 C. the residue weigh L obtained 2.425 gm. The crucible then was covered with a vented lid and heated strongly for 7 minutes at 950 C ± 20 C. the weight of residue was 1.520 gm. The crucible was then heated without lid, until a constant weight was obtained. The weight of the final residue was 0.232 gm. Calculate the percentage result of the above in from of proximate analysis.   10
