H 2 O 2 C 14 H 10 O 4 dye CO2 C 6 H 6 O dye You have been hired by a nightclub to design a glowing ring that will line run along the perimeter of the room. The owner really wanted to use glow sticks, but you don't want to have to change them every 30 mins when they burn out. Instead you desing a flowing system, using the same chemistry as the glow sticks. The system will make one loop around the ceiling of the 5m x 5m room, entering and exiting at nearly the same point. Your flowing channel is 1 cm in diamter. The system diagram and chemical formula are shown below. The phenyl oxalate ester (C 14 H 10 O 4 ) flows in at 5E-3 mol/min. It reacts with hydrogen peroxide (H 2 O 2 ) to excite a dye. Assume instantaneous even mixing at entry and no mixing after that point. What molarity of phenyl oxalate ester will keep the room glowing? What is thew molarity of the other components? C 14 H 10 O 4 + H 2 O 2 CO 2 + C 6 H 6 O Known C 14 H 10 O 4 molar flow rate = 5E-3 mol/min Dimentions of flowing channel = 20m long, 0.01m in diameter
