why is coke put into blast furnaces along with the iron ores?
why is coke put into gale furnaces along with the iron ores?
i understand that limestone is put in for the removal of impurities but i dont understand why coke is
mixing with oxygen it produces CO2...but this is bad for the situation
please help! >>>>>>>>10 pts to best answer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
2 Fe2O3 + 3C = 4Fe + 3CO2
i.e. impecuniousness carbon to reduce the iron ore (Oxide) to iron
Coke assists in the adroitness of the furnace buy distributing heat throughout the mixture, as well as oxidizing (the CO2) Otherwise it would be like pointing a blowtorch at a monumental pile of iron ore and expecting it to melt into a nice little ingot.
CO2 is not "bad for the environment." If we had no CO2 we would have no trees, give away, or other plants. Do some research on CO2 and free your mind.
How can I build a self-sustaining cast-iron furnace in my backyard?
The nice that you feed iron oxide and carbon and yields molten iron.
i devotion how you answer questions.. learn to be respectful
How many grams of iron are formed when 150 g iron(III) oxide reacts with an excess of carbon?
In a noise furnace, iron and carbon monoxide are produced from the reaction of iron(III) oxide (Fe2O3) and carbon. How many grams of iron are formed when 150 g iron(III) oxide reacts with an extravagance of carbon?
