Determine the adiabatic flame temperature

Using EES (or other) software, determine the effect of the amount of air on the adiabatic flame temperature of liquid octane (C8H18). Assume both the air and the octane are initially at 25°C. Determine the adiabatic flame temperature for 75, 90, 100, 120, 150, 200, 300, 500, and 800 percent theoretical air. Assume the hydrogen in the fuel always burns H2O and the carbon CO2, except when there is a deficiency of air. In the latter case, assume that part of the carbon forms CO. Plot the adiabatic flame temperature against the percent theoretical air, and discuss the results.
