Unformatted text preview: PETE 2032 Homework Solutions Chapter 12 12-9 Six pound moles of ethane, three lb-moles of propane and one lb-mole of n- butane are mixed in a closed container and the temperature is adjusted to 75 o F. What is the bubble-point pressure? What is the dew-point pressure? Calculate the compositions of the gas and liquid at equilibrium at 75 o F and 300 psia. You may assume that the mixture behaves like an ideal solution.
