Solutions to Homework #1 Problem #1. (Similar problem with a different geometry was solved in example 1(problem 1), so I will try to make it short) Assuming steady state condition, we can calculate the total flux(in moles/sec) of hydrogen through the surface of spherical tank as, JD r dc dr dc dr Mp Fe total H =- - - .( ). .( / ). . . 4 2 01 0 5 1 001 2 π ρ where 'p' is pressure of hydrogen in the tank in MPa, 'M' is the molecular weight of hydrogen in gm/mole, ' ρ ' is the density of iron in g/cm 3 , 'r' is the inner radius of the spherical tank. Flux out of the tank (in moles/sec) is same as rate of loss of hydrogen (in moles) from the tank. Assuming ideal gas behavior for hydrogen, PV = nRT J dn dt V RT dP dt total == If we use proper units for 'R' and 'V', then dP/dt is approx. 650 Pa/s. Problem #2. The quantity 'a' in counts/s/mg is a measure of tracer concentration in different sections. Plot ln a (logarithm to the base e) vs. x
