Enter the lower heating value, heat of vaporization of water, moles of water vaporized, moles of fuel combusted to calculate the heat of combustion.

## Heat of Combustion Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the heat of combustion.

HC = LHV + H_{v} * ( NH20 / NFuel)

- Where HC is the heat of combustion
- LHV is the lower heating value
- Hv is the heat of vaporization of water
- NH20 is the number of moles of water vaporized
- NFuel is the number of moles of fuel combusted
