Unformatted text preview: Also given, V = 446.5 lbmol/h and L = 553.5 lbmol/h In Fig. 6.24, FLV LM L V = VMV L 1/ 2 = 553.6(74.8) 113 . 446.5(68.9) 33.2 1/ 2 = 0.248 From Fig. 6.24, CF = 0.27 ft/s. From Eq. (6.42), C = (1)(1)(1)0.27 = 0.27 ft/s. From Eq. (6-40), - V Uf =C L V From Eq.

This is too large, so re-dimension the volume to give H/D = 4. From Eq. (7-46), V DT = V 1/ 3 208 = 3.14 1/ 3 = 4.05 ft From Eq.
