Unformatted text preview: aporization of steam at 273.7 kPa (404 K) = 2,172 kJ/kg Therefore, we need 436,000/2,172 = 200.7 kmol/h or 3,616 kg/h. (f) A rigorous enthalpy balance around the reboiler takes into account the sensible heat effect since the temperature of the liquid entering the reboiler is not the same as the temperatures of the equilibrium liquid and vapor leaving the reboiler. Let N = conditions leaving the reboiler and N1 be the conditions leaving the stage above the reboiler. Then, QR = VN HVN + LN H LN  LN 1 H LN 1 Note that in the simplified enthalpy balance of part (e), the following equation was applied, QR = VN HVN  H LN Since, VN = LN  LN 1 , this is equivalent to assuming H LN = H LN 1 Exercise 7.28 (continued) Exercise 7.29
