Problem *3.124 [Difficulty: 3] r 2 V max = ω r 2 Given: Gas centrifuge, with maximum peripheral speed Vmax = 950 ft/s contains uranium hexafluoride gas (M = 352 lb/lbmol) at 620 deg F. Find: (a) Ratio of maximum pressure to pressure at the centrifuge axis (b) Evaluate pressure ratio at 620 deg F. Solution: We will apply the hydrostatics equations to this system. a g p G G ρ ρ = + Governing Equations: (Hydrostatic equation) r r a g r p ρ ρ = + (Hydrostatic equation radial component) Assumptions: (1) Incompressible fluid (2) Rigid body motion (3) Ideal gas behavior, constant temperature 2 ω ρ r T R p a r p g r = = For rigid body motion: a r V 2 r = r ω ( ) 2 r = r ω 2 = Thus: Separating variables and integrating: p 1 p 2 p 1 p d ω 2 R g

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
