Density of diesel?
As of 2010, the density of petroleum diesel is about 0.832 kg/l/ This is 12 percent more than ethanol free diesel.
For a diesel with a density of 843 kg/m3 @ 15.6°C, the density at 80°C would be 803 kg/m3. For reference, the EURO-V specification for diesel requires a specific gravity of 0.820 to 0.845 @ 15.6°C. The diesel above is on the heavier side of the specification. Since the composition of diesel may depend on local specifications, the composition and density may vary for region to region and even refinery to refinery.
the higher self ignition temperature of the petrol is due to the low density than the diesel. as density = pressure / (R* temperature) R= universal gas constant. ex. hydrogen (gas) has density = .082 at 300 k while kerosene has =810 (both are in kg/m^3) and auto ignition temperatures are hydrogen =500 kreosene=295 similarly , petrol-density=737 diesel has=820 to 950 .
Diesel fuel weighs about 7.1 pounds per gallon, so a liter, of which there are 3.8 in a gallon, would weigh about 1.9 pounds. --- Since a litre (liter) is a metric measure, best to keep the whole answer in metric, don't you think? A litre (liter) of diesel fuel weighs 832grams, or 0.832kg. .8 kgms/ ltr depending on fuel density Diesel has a density of around 900gl-1, at about 20oC, so one litre of…
I do not know what "on rd" diesel is but do know diesel fuel (petroleum distillate) The density of petroleum diesel is about 0.85 kg/l (7.09 lb/US gal) "on rd" diesel is diesel fuel used on the highway (rd=road) which is taxed by the Federal Government at the pump, as opposed to "off rd" diesel which is used on farms for tractors and other farm implements and is tax exempt.
There are many variables here as the temperature and type of diesel effects the mass. However, Diesel fuel oil 20 to 60 at 15ºC has a density of 0.820 to 0.950 kg/L I think a reasonably good average value is Diesel oil 40 at 15ºC with a density of 0.850 kg/L 1 metric ton = 1000 kg therefore 1000 kg / 0.850 kg/= 1176.4705 liters
Calculate MT from KL as follows KL x Density of Liquid in MT/KL gives MT Example Density of Diesel fuel oil at 15ºC has a density of 0.820 to 0.950 Kg/L (or 820 to 950kg/KL which is eqaul to .820 to .950 MT/KL). Let's take average value of density at 15ºC as 0.850 kg/L (or 0.850 MT/KL) Therefore 1 Kl of Diesel oil = 1KL x 0.850 MT/KL= 0.850 MT
When petrol is mixed with diesel engine the engine will not start due to the following reasons; Fuel in diesel must be compressed at 400o and above to approach compression power while petrol start at 150o Petrol have lower density than that used in diesel engine Petrol use spark ignition lather pressure ignition Petrol have different octane number than that used in diesel engine Petrol fuel cannot produce much power as that produced in diesel…
An intercooler is used on a turbocharged (or supercharged) engine. Assuming you have a turbo diesel: The turbo compresses air to get more air into your engine. More air + more fuel = more power. The air heats up as it is compressed, reducing it's density. An intercooler chills the air, increasing its density allowing for greater power to be generated.
The current Euro-V diesel product specification used by much of the world requires diesel to be between 0.820 kg/l and 0.845 kg/l at 15.6°C. This variation has to do with the amount of kerosene (jet-fuel) blended into diesel. In the winter more kerosene will be blended into diesel to ensure no cold properties (such as cold filter plug point (CFPP) and/or cloud point) are exceeded. In the summer less kerosene is blended into diesel because…
