Unformatted text preview: ite small. mV (c) From Eq. (7.52), HOG = HG + H L , where we must use the slope, m, of the equilibrium L curve instead of a Kvalue because the equilibrium curve is curved. At the top of the column: Near a mole fraction, xD , of 0.9, m = (0.9780  0.9359)/0.10 = 0.42 Estimate HL from Eq. (6132), using the following properties and parameters: NOR PAC Montz CL 1.080 1.165 3 3 hL , m /m 0.0162 0.0241 0.947 0.930 , m3/m3 uL, ft/s 0.00898 0.00591 2 3 a, m /m 86.8 300 ah, m2/m3 52.9 93 1/ 3 Analysis: (c) at the top of the column (continued) Exercise 7.52 (continued) Need an estimate of the diffusivity of methanol in water at high concentrations of methanol. From Example 3.7, the diffusivity of methanol in water at a mole fraction of 0.8 and 25oC is 1.5 x 105 cm2/s. Use Eq. (339) to correct this for temperature to 170oF or 350 K and viscosity. For methanol, viscosity at 25oC (298 K) = 0.55 cP and at 350 K, viscosity = 0.32 cP. Therefore, 350 0.55 DMeOH = 150 105 . = 3.0 105 cm2/s 298 0.32 From Eq. (6132), for NOR PACK, using SI (i...
