CHBE 241 Material and Energy Balances Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering The University of British Columbia Assignment #6 Due: Friday, 1 December 2006, 4:30pm CHBE Main Office To solve some of the equations, you might want to use Excel and the procedures described in the textbook (p. 628, “Finding Roots of Nonlinear Equations”). 1. Use the Antoine equation to calculate the boiling point temperature of water (a) In Vancouver (b) at Blackcomb. 2. A saturated liquid solution of benzene and naphthalene is equilibrated at 45 C and 1 atm. What is the mol% benzene in solution? If the solution is cooled slightly such that a solid phase forms, will the solid be pure benzene, pure naphthalene, or a mixture? (Refer to Figure 5.12, or to Table B.9 in the textbook.) 3. Use the Antoine equation along with constants given in App. B, to calculate saturation tem- peratures of the n-alkanes (n-pentane, n-hexane, n-heptane, and n-octane), the n-alcohols (methanol, ethanol, n-propanol, and n-butanol) and water at 1 atm. Plot the saturation tem-
