[pct-l] Re: Forgotten chemistry

Well, my son shamed me into looking the stuff up:

               CRC          Btu/#

Coal      25MBtu/T           12.5
Briquets  23MBtu/T           11.5
Wood      20MBtu/T           10
Oils      19KBtu/lb          19

These values are combined from several similar ones (hard/soft coal),
different liquid fuels, etc.   The only liquid fuel not well described by
19KBtu/# is alcohol, which has about half that heat of combustion.
