3 Problem 2 (25 points) A binary mixture of 45 lb moles of methane and 80 lb moles of normal decane is confined in a sealed vessel at T = 361 ºF and P = 1600 psia. The equilibrium ratios (k- values) for the methane and normal decane at the given conditions are as follows: k 1 = 2.6360 k 2 = 0.0708 a. Calculate the lb moles of liquid in the vessel if any. Subscripts: 1 = methane, 2 = normal decane First determine the state of the system. n 1 = 45 lb moles n 2 = 80 lb moles n = n 1 +n 2 = 45+80 = 125 lb moles z 1 = n 1 /n = 45/125 = 0.36
