(5 marks) 4 (a) Write the significance & determination of proximate analysis of coal.?(5 marks) 4 (b) A Sample of coal was analysis as follow: 2.5 gm sample of coal was weighed in a silica crucible after heating for 60 minutes at 110 C. the residue weigh L obtained 2.425 gm. The crucible then was covered with a vented lid and heated strongly for 7 minutes at 950C ± 20 C. the weight of residue was 1.520 gm. The crucible was then heated without lid, until a constant weight was obtained. The weight of the final residue was 0.232 gm. Calculate the percentage result of the above in from of proximate analysis. (10 marks) 4 (c) Explain moving bed catalytic cracking(5 marks)
