Problem 4-7 Problem Statement: Extractor Basis: 400 (g/min) Acetic Acid Fraction 0.12 Water Fraction 0.89 Notice how unit labels are in a different cell t Liquid extraction is an operation used to separate the components of a liquid mixture contains to components: a solute (A) and a liquid solvent (B). The mixture is contacte that has 2 key properties: A dissolves in it and B is immiscible or nearly immiscible wi oil, and A a species that dissolves in both water and oil). Some of the A transfers from the C-rich phase (the extract) separate from each other in a settling tank. If the raffina A will be transferred from it. This process can be repeated until essentially all of the A Shown below is a flowchart of a process in which acetic acid (A) is extracted from a m into 1-hexanol (C ), a liquid immiscible with water. m C (g/min C 6 H 13 OH) (g CH 3 COOH/g) (g H 2 O/g) For example: the basis has "400" ty label of "(g/min)" typed into
