gasoline. What is the mass fraction of ethanol in gasohol? (S.G
ethanol = 0.789 and S.G. gasoline = 0.710) 3/6 ChE 210: Meeting 10 February 2, 2011 b. (14 points) Pure gasoline and pure ethanol are fed continuously to a
mixer to produce gasohol. Draw the process flow diagram and
label the streams with appropriate variables for the flow rates and
compositions. Include known values from part (a) on the process flow diagram. 1 v N . c. (8 points) Based on the process flow diagram in part (b), how many
degrees of freedom are there in this process? .l ' \

mass balance equations for gasoline and ethanol using the
variables on the process flow diagram in part (b). Assume that the
process is operating at steady state. Provide a reason for
eliminating any terms from the general balance equation. l.‘ Total Massﬁ‘ H l Gasoline: Ethanol: e. (10 points) Calculate the mass flow rates of gasoline and ethanol
