Question

Which of the following mixtures will produce gas?

Options

A) CO\(_2\) and H\(_2\)

B) CO\(_2\) and N\(_2\)

C) CO and H\(_2\)

D) CO and N\(_2\)

The correct answer is D.

Explanation:

Producer gas is CO + N\(_2\)
It is produced by passing a stream of air through re-hot coke. Nitrogen is inert and is thus left unreacted.
Water gas (CO + H\(_2\) in equal volume), it is prepared by passing of steam over white hot coke (1000\(^{\circ}\)C).
Synthesis gas is CO + 3H\(_2\). It is formed during industrial preparation of Hydrogen
