Calculate the emission rate from the stove, Physics

1.Consider the dangers of using a camp stove inside an enclosed space like a tent. Test data show that a high heat liquid fuel camp stove can dramatically increase CO mixing ratios. For one brand of stove, CO increased to 130 ppmv in 15 minutes. The tent volume was 0.59 m3 tent and the air exchange rate was 2 hr-1 with tent zipped up. The initial and outside air CO mixing ratio was 0.1 ppmv. Use P=0.8 atmospheres, and an air temperature of 5°C.

a) Calculate the CO emission rate from the stove.

b) After it reached 130 ppmv the stove was turned off. Calculate the CO mixing ratio 10 minutes later.
