Name:____________________________ Given the feed stream molar flow rate of 70 mol/min, solve for the product molar flow rates, D 1 , B 1 , D 2 , B 2 (in mol/min). Equations: Xylene: 0.15*F = 0.07*D 1 + 0.18*B 1 + 0.15*D 2 + 0.24*B 2 Styrene: 0.25*F = 0.04*D 1 + 0.24*B 1 + 0.10*D 2 + 0.65*B 2 Toluene: 0.40*F = 0.54*D
