I know that I am not associated with a school, but I have an interesting
question. I am searching to find the (chemical?) heat content of a dollar bill
because fuel is expensive and I want to make an example of what it costs to burn
natural gas to generate electricity versus burning dollar bills. Thought it
might make for a fun class question.
