For the oil
Mineral oil has a density of around 0.8 g/cm3, "good" crude oil of around 0.8 - 0,83 g/cm3 and "heavy" crude oil is above 0,92 g/cm3
Crude oil consists (by weight) of 83% to 87% carbon.
One barrel is about 159 liters. Assuming a density of 0,85g/cm3 for our oil we would end up with 135 kg of oil, which contains on the higher end (87% carbon) 118 kg of carbon.
For the carbon dioxide:
Carbon Standard atomic weight: 12.0107(+/- 0.00008) gÂ·molâˆ’1
Oxygen Standard atomic weight: 15.9994(+/- 0.00003) gÂ·molâˆ’1
Lets say: Carbon = 12 and 2 x Oxygen = 2 x 16 = 32 => Total: 44
(12/44 = 27.27% of Carbon in CO2)
Assuming that all the carbon will find its oxygen to form CO2, that would be 433 kg of carbon dioxide.
With above assumptions:
1 barrel of oil could produce 433 kg of carbon dioxide.
(Ignoring all other side products)
Taking coal to contain 50 percent carbon, which combines with oxygen during burning to form CO2, we can arrive at 1.83 kg CO2 for every 1 kg of coal burned. Another way to put it, taking the efficiency of power stations into account, is that 950 grams of CO2 is evolved for every KWh of electricity produced. Note that for natural gas it is more like 600 g per KWh for natural gas powered plants.
