P a g e | 1 /2 Homework Assignment Mathcad #2 CHE 1510 Computer Applications STATEMENT#1 These are the mass balances at a split second for 3 different tanks in a chemical plant, where X i denotes the mass for the component “i” in kg/liter. The numbers in front of X is the flow rate (liter/second). The answer (on the right side of the equal sign) is the accumulation of mass in each tank at the split moment. Tank 1) 27 2 10 3 2 1 = - + X X X Tank 2) 5 . 61 2 6 3 3 2 1 - = + - - X X X Tank 3) 5 . 21 5 3 2 1 - = + + X X X P1: For the system above, determine x 1 , x 2 and x 3 . STATEMENT#2 At your new position as a specialist in chemical modeling you have been asked to find temperatures along a heated rod. You started to browse in an old chemical engineering book and found the following: (1)
