Homework 2/Practice Exam 1 CHE 443, Spring 2014 1. The figure below shows a well that is 12,000 ft deep. The bottom H=2000-ft portion is filled with an incompressible oil of specific gravity s=0.75, above with there is an h=10,000-ft layer of methane (CH 4 ; C=12, H=1) at 100 °F, which behaves as an ideal isothermal gas whose density is not constant. The gas and oil are static. The density of water is 62.3 lb m /ft3. a) If the pressure gauge at the top of the well registers p A =1,000 psig, compute the absolute pressure p B (psia) at the oil/methane interface. Work in terms of symbols before substituting numbers. b) Also compute (p C -p B ), the additional pressure (psi) in going from the interface B to the bottom

    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.
