The fraction of the volume taken up by the air space between the particles, called the void fiaction, is 40.0%. A mixture of 60.0 Wt% chloro-benzene and 40 Wt% ethyl—chloride is added to the reactor until it fills the void space completely. Estimate the total weight of the liquid and solid in the vessel. Find the mass of particles.

    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.
