Lecture 4: Phase Equilibrium in Flowing Systems 1 Lecture 4: Phase Equilibrium in Flowing Systems In this lecture we’ll show: • How to apply thermodynamics to flowing systems • Energy and entropy balances in flowing systems • Availability and lost work • Gibbs Phase Rule for flowing systems and system specification • How data of mixture compositions are sometimes tabulated graphically. • Graphical determination of vapor-liquid equilibrium of hydrocarbon systems Last lecture primarily focused on the thermodynamics of separations. We covered: • Phase Stability and the Gibbs phase rule. • A simple separation based on a vapor-liquid phase diagram. • The lever rule. • Equilibrium ratios (K-values, distribution coefficients, etc.). • The activity, and activity coefficients. • Measures of separations.
