## What is the calorific value of LPG?

As it is a gas, it does not pose ground or water pollution hazards, but it can cause air pollution. LPG has a typical specific calorific value of 46.1 MJ/kg compared with 42.5 MJ/kg for fuel oil and 43.5 MJ/kg for premium grade petrol (gasoline).

**What is the calorific value of LPG in kcal per m3?**

Gross heating and net heating value for some common gases as hydrogen, methane and more

Fuel Gas | (kcal/kg) | (kcal/nm3) 1) |
---|---|---|

Gross Heating Values | Gross Heating Values | |

LPG (average) | 11920 | 28000 |

Acetylene | 11932 | 13980 |

Carbon Monoxide | 2411 | 3014 |

### What is the calorific value of LPG in kJ?

50 kJ/gm

Calorific value of LPG is 50 kJ/gm means that if 1 gram of LPG is burnt completely. then it will produce 50 kJ of heat energy.

**Does LPG have higher calorific value?**

LPG has a higher calorific value (94MJ/m3) than natural gas, methane, (38 MJ/m3), which means it cannot simply be substituted for natural gas. LPG can be mixed with air to produce a synthetic natural gas (or also known as SNG) that can be easily substituted.

## How many Litres is 1kg of LPG?

1.96 litre

A handy conversion rate to remember with filled cylinders is that 1 kilogram is approximately equal to 1.96 litre of LPG.

**Is LPG has higher calorific value than biogas?**

Suppose you were asked to boil a given quantity of water using cow dung, coal and LPG as fuel. The amount of heat energy produced on complete combustion of 1 kg of a fuel is called its calorific value….Calorific Values of Different Fuels.

Fuel | Calorific Value (kJ/kg) |
---|---|

CNG | 50000 |

LPG | 55000 |

Biogas | 35000-40000 |

Hydrogen | 150000 |
