Exercise 2.1 Subject: Minimum work for separating a hydrocarbon stream. Given: Component flow rates, n i , of feed and product 1, in kmol/h. Phase condition; temperature in K; enthalpy, h , in kJ/kmol; and entropy, s , in kJ/kmol-K for feed, product 1, and product 2. Infinite heat sink temperature = T 0 = 298.15 K. Find: Minimum work of separation, W min , in kJ/h Analysis: From Eq.

Exercise 2.2 Subject: Minimum work for separating a mixture of ethylbenzene and xylene isomers. Given: Component flow rates, n i , of feed ,in lbmol/h. Component split fractions for three products, Phase condition; temperature in o F; enthalpy, h , in Btu/lbmol; and entropy, s , in Btu/lbmol- o R for feed and three products. Infinite heat sink temperature = T 0 = 560 o R. Find: Minimum work of separation, W min , in kJ/h Analysis: From Eq.

### What students are saying

• 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.
