Exercise 7.33 (continued) Analysis: (a) (continued) Exercise 7.33 (continued) Analysis: (a) (continued) Exercise 7.33 (continued) Analysis: (a) (continued) Exercise 7.33 (continued) Analysis: (a) (continued) Analysis: (continued) Exercise 7.33 (continued) (b) When open (live) steam is used with the same reflux ratio, the rectification section operating line and the q-line are identical to part (a) for a partial reboiler. Thus, the part (a) McCabe-Thiele diagram for the high concentration region applies for open steam. However, the stripping section operating line and the bottoms mole fraction change as follows. The liquid rate in the rectification section = L = 1.314D = 1.314(14.52) = 19.08 kmol/h. The vapor rate in the rectifying section = V = L + D = 19.08 + 14.52 = 33.6 kmol/h. The liquid rate below the feed stage = L' = L + F = 19.08 + 100 =...
