Question 83 - The United States of America Energy Information Administration reports the following emissions in million metric tons of carbon dioxide in the world for year 2012 : Natural gas : 6799, petroleum : 11695, coal : 13787. Coal-fired electric power generation emits around 2000 pounds of carbon dioxide for every megawatt hour generated, which is almost double the carbon dioxide released by a natural gas-fired electric plant per megawatt hour generated. If 1 metric ton = 1000 kg and 1 pound = 0.4536 kg, estimate the total energy generated by natural gas in the world for year 2012, in gigawatt hour.
Answer 83 - Mass of carbon dioxide emitted by natural gas-fired electric power generation for every megawatt hour generated = 2000 / 2 = 1000 pounds = 1000 pounds x (0.4536 kg / pound) x (metric ton / 1000 kg) = 0.4536 metric tons. Total energy generated by natural gas in the world for year 2012 = 6799 million metric tons x (megawatt hour / 0.4536 metric tons) = 14988.977 million megawatt hour = 14988977 gigawatt hour, approximately.

ACCOUNTING AND FINANCIAL ENGINEERING - EXAMPLE 34.4 : A university is enrolling new students of biochemical engineering degree. A long queue is formed during registration. Let L = rate of newcomers to a queue, m = number of clients served at a certain time, T = time in system. In M / M / 1 queue, let T = time waiting in a queue + service time, L = 2 / second, m = 3 / second. (a) Find the service time, A = 1 / m. (b) Calculate time waiting in a queue, B = A (L / m) / (1 - L / m). (c) What is the value of T?
QUANTUM CHEMISTRY AND CHEMICAL ENGINEERING - EXAMPLE 31.1 : As an approximation, let v = Zc / 137 where v is the radial velocity for 1 s electron of an element, c is the speed of light, Z is the atomic number. For gold with Z = 79, find the radial velocity of its 1 s electron, in term of c and percentage of the speed of light. (b) As an approximation, let A x A = 1 - Z x Z / 18769 where A is the ratio of the relativistic and non-relativistic Bohr radius. Find the value of A.
