CHBE 221 SAMPLE TEST #2 1 (30 pts) Experiments are performed on a certain gas, and it is determined that it has a vapor pressure of 573 mm Hg at 60 ℃ and a vapor pressure of 796 mm Hg at 70 ℃ . Estimate the vapor pressure at 90 ℃ using the data above. Do NOT try a linear extrapolation! The best method using this data will give an error of about 1% for the vapor pressure. 2 (35 pts) A certain gas (MW 29) has known critical temperature and critical pressure. In the absence of charts or tables, an engineer is curious how well the classic van der Waals equation 𝑃 ൌ 𝑅𝑇 𝑉 െ 𝑏 𝑎 𝑉 would work for predicting PVT in the supercritical fluid regime. He charges a cylinder of volume 250 L with 21 kg of the gas. He finds it has an absolute pressure of 50 atm at a temperature of ሺെ50 ℃ሻ . Use the van der Waals equation to predict the compressibility factor

### What students are saying

• 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.
