Combustion product
« on: April 13, 2005, 02:07:01 AM »
Hi there,

I'm doing studies on outboard engine combustion product in water. The outboard engine produced Carbon Dioxide (CO2), Nitrogen Monoxide (NO) and Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) and react with water. I cannot seem to figure out the chemical equation.

CO2 + NO + NO2 + H2O = H2CO3 + HNO3      ( not sure correct or not )

NO and NO2 combine to N2O3 which is an anhydride of HNO2, not HNO3

Hi there,

Thank You for your last reply.But I thought when Nitrogen Monoxide and Nitrogen Dioxide ( both of them also called Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) ) react with water will produce nitric acid (HNO3). So, when Carbon Dioxide, Nitrogen Monoxide and Nitrogen Dioxide react with water will produce carbonic acid and nitric acid.

cheers
