Unformatted text preview: the partial pressure exerted by the methane? Component Methane Ethane Propane Mol fraction 0.85 0.10 0.05 Apparent Molecular Weight Multiply the molecular weight of each component by the mol fraction of that component in the mixture, then sum to get the apparent molecular weight of the mixture. To find specific gravity of a mixture, divide the apparent molecular weight by 29 (molecular weight of air) Z-factors and specific gravity Example 3-8 Example 3-9 (also find mass in lbs) When there is a heptanes+: Example 3-10 When the composition is unknown: Use specific gravity and Fig 3-1: Example 3-11 When H2S and CO2 are present: Example 3-12 Equation of van der Waals Considers the attractive force between molecules (which he defined as a/v2) a ( p + 2 )(VM - b) = RT VM a,b are constants characteristic of the particular gas, Vm = v/n) is the molar volume, R is the universal gas constant Modifications and Improvements Clausius (1880) Berthelot (1889) Dieterici (1899) Wohl (1927) Lorentz...
