 en Formulation of a Mathematical Model for the Analysis of the Emission of Carbon Dioxide from Gaseous Fuel using Least Square Method
COLE, AT; SHEHU, MD; ABDULLAHI, A & BOLARIN, G

Abstract

In this paper we formulate a model for the emission of Carbon Dioxide from gaseous fuel in Nigeria. We considered a third degree polynomial model using a least square method using the actual data set of twenty one years on State level Carbon Dioxide emissions in Nigeria from 1994-2014. The residual analysis was used to predict the short and medium term total Carbon Dioxide emissions trend. From the results the state of affairs of Carbon Dioxide Emission for subsequent years was forecast and this will help the Government to take control measures in curtailing the emission of Carbon Dioxide in the country.
