Determination of number of Ideal Stages: McCabe-Thiele Method Ex: Gas Absorption: NH 3 from air H 2 0 ± Given: Input Concentration x a ( x o ), y b ( y N+1 ) L a , V b Desired y a ( y 1 ) 1. Get x b ( x N ), from a complete balance on the whole unit. 2. Plot (x a , y a ) , (x b , y b ) . (In abs: y a < y b ). x a x b y a y b
