HANOI UNIVERSITY OF MINING AND GEOLOGY ECH 51 Material Balances First Exam Monday April 15, 9:00-10:30 (Closed book and closed notes, calculators allowed) Prof. Brian G. Higgins April 2012 Given for Exam: Total Mass Balance t V H t L Ρ V + A H t L Ρ H v - w L n A = 0 Species Mass Balance (no reactions) t V H t L Ρ A V + A H t L Ρ A H v A - w L n A = 0, A = 1,2,…,N Problem 1 (10 pts) As water flows over the dam illustrated in Figure below, it accelerates because of the action of gravity. When the effect of gravity is much larger than the effect of the friction between the water and the surface of the dam, the magni- tude of the velocity of the water can be expressed as v = v 0 2 + 2gz in which z is measured as indicated in the figure. This expression for the velocity is based on the idea that potential and kinetic energy are conserved when frictional effects are negligible. If the width of the dam is constant and the water level in the dam does not change appreciably, what is the thickness of the fluid stream, h(z) , as a function of z.

"Before using Course Hero my grade was at 78%. By the end of the semester my grade was at 90%. I could not have done it without all the class material I found."

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
