  Free Template from www.brainybe 2 Process Variables??? The quantities used to describe a process and these must be measured and computed PROCESS    Feed INPUT    Products  OUTPUT To design or analyze a process, we need to know the amounts, compositions, and condition of materials entering, leaving, and within the process.

  Free Template from www.brainybe 4 Mass and Flow In Chemical processes there are a number of variable that typically play an important role. Density ( ρ ) : The mass of a material per unit volume (kg/m 2 , g/cm 3 , Ibm/ft 3 ) Specific Volume : Volume per unit mass (unit???) v m = ρ 1 = SV

  Free Template from www.brainybe 8 EXERCISE 1. The mass flowrate of n-hexane ( ρ =0.659 g/cm 3 ) in a pipe is 6.59 g/s . What is the volumetric flowrate of the n-hexane? 1. The volumetric flowrate of CCl 4 ( ρ =0.659 g/cm 3 ) in a pipe is 100.0 cm 3 /min . What is the mass flowrate of the CCl4? 1. A steadily flowing steam of water is funneled into a graduated cylinder for exactly 30s , during that time 50 ml is collected. What a) is the volumetric flowrate of the steam? b) is the mass flowrate?
