Crude oil is fractioned by two separating columns. The incoming crude oil is composed of the following weight fractions: 0.0200 gas, 0.240 gasoline, 0.120 kerosene, 0.130 diesel, 0.110 lubricating oil, 0.110 heating oil, and the rest solids. The crude oil is fed into the first column at 1135 kg/hr producing a stream of gas, a 5:1 gasoline to kerosene stream, a stream containing kerosene and diesel, and 642 kg/hr stream of the bottoms. The bottoms, containing diesel, lubricating oil, heating oil, and solids, is fed into a second distillation column that separates the components into three streams. The top stream contains diesel and heating oil. The middle stream contains heating oil and lubricating oil, and the bottom stream contains the solids. If you want to produce 212 kg/hr of the stream containing heating and lubricating oil, find: 1 - The flow rate, m3, of the gasoline and kerosene stream. 2 - The composition of the heating oil and lubricating oil stream.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
