5 The Material Balance Overall Mass Balance: F = V + L or V = F - L or L = F - V Component Balance: V*y = F*x F – L*x Divided by F V*y = F*x F – L*x = x F – (F – V)*x F F F F Using symbol, f = V/F, the fraction of the feed that is vaporized, f*y = x F - x + f*x y = (f-1) *x + x F f f Cuts the Y=X line It is the equation of straight line of slope (f – 1)/f , and is known as the operating line. 1. To find intercept on X=Y diagonal line of the equilibrium plot, put y = x x = (f-1)*x + x F x*[ 1 - (f -1 )] = x F f f Rearranging: x*[f – f + 1 ] = x F or x = x F when Y=X f f
