CLASIFICATION OF FUELS PowerPoint Presentation: 5 Calorific value Calorific value is the total quantity of heat liberated when a unit mass of fuel burn completely. Measured at 25˚C. Heat or energy produced Gross calorific value (GCV): vapour is fully condensed Net calorific value (NCV): water is not fully condensed. NCV = GCV – (mass %hydrogen)(9)( λ v )kJ/kg λ v –latent heat of water vapour at reference temperature, normally at 298.15K. λ v at 298.15K = 2442.5kJ/kg.
