Unformatted text preview: Department of Chemical Engineering ChE 110A University of California, Santa Barbara Winter 2010 Problem Set No. 5 Due: Monday, February 8, 2010 Objective : To understand and perform calculations using PVT equations of state. Note: Numerical values for some problems have been changed from those in the book. Problem 19 (thought problem) Consider this PV diagram of a fluid displaying a liquid-vapor coexistence region. You find two containers with saturated fluid, both at g G , but with different total molar volumes and as shown above. Here, total molar volume is the total volume (liquid + vapor) divided by the total moles (liquid + vapor). (a) How does the average density of the vapor in container 1 compare with that in container 2? How does the liquid density compare between the two containers? (b) How does the amount of vapor in container 1 compare to that in container 2? Problem 20 ( Smith, van Ness, Abbott, 3.3 page 111) The Tait equation describes the molar volume of a liquid along an isotherm, and is given by:...
