  • Catalytic Converter Case Study

    CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION 1.1 BACKGROUND The catalytic converter was invented by Eugene Houdry, a French mechanical engineer and skilled in catalytic oil refining who lived in the United States around 1950. The invention of catalytic converter has a major role in controlling harmful emissions. When the paper of smog in Los Angeles was published, Houdry became anxious about the role of smoke stack and automobile exhaust in air pollution and established a company, Oxy-Catalyst. Houdry primary developed catalytic converters for smoke stacks, he then manufactured catalytic converters for warehouse fork lifts which uses low grade non leaded gasoline. Then he began his research to progress catalytic converters for gasoline engines that became used…

  • Four Phosphazenium Saltss Lab Report

    P5+ has a higher catalytic activity even with 0.5 wt% loading, and the Mn of PPO reached 4,080, 7,770, and 15,000 g/mol after 5, 13, and 28 h, respectively. The PDI of polyether from Pi4P1+ and P5+ was narrow in the range 1.027–1.036, but was higher (1.059–1.093) for Cy4P1+. Noteworthy, PPO catalyzed with Pi4P1+ displayed an extremely low unsaturation degree (0.004–0.008 mmol/g) and high average functionality (2.93–2.98). In Table 2, the by-product, which has a great influence on the…

  • What Is Th350?

    integral bell-housing. The TH350 weighs in at a moderately heavy 120 lbs. It has a distinctive oil pan that is chamfered at the passenger side, rear corner. At the right rear of the case is the modulator. The TH350-C introduced a lockup torque converter version of the transmission and was introduced in the late 1979 model year. This model stayed in production through 1984. The transmission’s best feature was that it contained an electronic lock-up converter that increased fuel-efficiency…

    measured? 7. Design the basic interface circuit (using an op amp) for a temperature sensor that covers a range of 0° to 70°C if the output of the sensor is 2 mV/1°C and the ADC voltage range is 0 to 4 V. 8. Design an amplifier suitable for converting the output voltage from an LM35 temperature sensor (10 mV/°C) into a signal that makes use of the full input voltage range (0-5V) of the HCS12 ADC port pins. Assume the LM35 is to measure temperatures from 0°C up to +150°C. Show work and…

  • Redox Catalyst Essay

    The catalytic converter system in vehicle exhaust tried to eliminate nitrogen oxide emissions, carbon monoxide emissions and hydrocarbon emissions which is unburned fuels. In a catalytic converter has two blocks which is reduction catalyst and oxidation catalyst. The reduction catalyst is made up of platinum and rhodium while the oxidation catalyst is made up of platinum and palladium. During combustion, the toxic gas enter into the first catalytic converter and heat up simultaneously. This…

  • Hybrid Vehicles

    automobile. The focus has been aimed towards preventing greenhouse gases, more specifically nitrous oxide emissions because of its correlation to smog production. Two key components have been added to the exhaust system of gas powered engines to prevent greenhouse gas: Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) devices, and the Catalytic Converter. The EGR valve opens from back pressure from the car 's exhaust and channels it back into the combustion chamber combining the exhaust with intake air, the…

    Increasing the surface area of the solid increases the chances of collision taking place. Imagine a reaction between magnesium metal and a dilute acid like hydrochloric acid. The reaction involves collision between magnesium atoms and hydrogen ions. Increasing the number of collisions per second increases the rate of reaction. Catalytic converters use metals like platinum, palladium and rhodium to convert poisonous compounds in vehicle exhausts into less harmful things. For example, a reaction…
