Automobile B costs $21,000 and averages 45.0 mpg. Assuming that the cost of gasoline is $3.00 per gallon, how many miles would have to be driven by the two automobiles in order for the lower fuel consumption of Autornobile B to compensate for its higher purchase price? Il‘x) (15 points) A cylindrical wooden object has a height of 50.0 cm and a cross sectional area of 75.0 cmz. A vessel contains two immiscible liquid layers, the lower layer being water (p = 1.00 g/mL), and the top layer being a mixture of the two nonpolar hydrocarbons n-hexane (p = 0.659 g/mL) and benzene (p = 0.879 gme). This hydrocarbon mixture is 80.0 mass % n-hexane. The cylinder floats vertically in the liquids with the top 20.0 centimeters submerged in the hydrocarbon layer and the bottom 30.0 centimeters submerged in the water layer. Calculate the weight of the wooden object in Newtons. (g = 9.81 mfsz) Li.) (15 points) A vessel contains gas at a low pressure. Usng the sketch and informatiou provided below, calculate the gauge pressure (the pressure that will be read 011 the Bourdon gauge) for the gas 111 the vessel? Give your answer in units 011681112.

This stream is mixed with a stream of a_ir flowing at a rate sufficient to raise the ratio of mots of 03 to 111013 of C3H3 t010.0. (MW of C3H3 = 44.0; MW 0f02 = 32.0; MW ofair = 29.) Calculate the maSS flow rate of the air stream. (15 points) A second-order reaction A —> products, with rate constant k = 8.4? (molesfliter)'1min" is occurring at steady-state in the liquid phase in a continuous stirred—tank reactor. The flow rate of the inlet and outlet streams is 3.00 liters per minute. The concentration of reactant A in the inlet stream is 0.1?5 mols’L, and the concentration in the product stream leaving the reactor is 0.0350 mols’L. For a second-order reaction involving the single reactant A, the reaction rate is given by the equation: rate of reaction in moles per liter per minute = kc“2 where cA is mols per liter What is the volume of the reactor in liters? (20 points) There are four components (A, B, C, and D) in the feed to a distillation column, and the feed composition is 15.0 mole % A, 40.0% B 35.0% C, and 10.0% D. .. Only two streams leave the distillation column, the distillate and the bottoms. All of the A in the feed leaves in the distillate, and all of the D leaves in the bottoms. Components B and C appear both in the distillate and in the bottoms. The bottoms is 50.0 mole % D. The distillate is 37.5 mole % C. What is the mole % B in the distillate? ...
