Journal articles need to be cited as Author(s), Title, Source (i.e. journal, page numbers, year) (c) Using this relevant information and Visio TM , develop a pseudo Process Flow Diagram (PFD) that includes as much information as possible concerning unit operations (reactors, heat exchangers, columns, absorbers, etc.) , temperatures, pressures, and a material balance (rough) on the basis of 43.715 kgmol/hr methanol and 3.3241 kgmol/hr water in the feed. The grading is based on the thought/effort put into the PFD and the referencing of the various steps (i.e. Why did you choose this process method? What reference was used to develop this step in the process?). This is an open ended problem and so you need to decide when to stop....
