2 Problem 12-8 We know that the bubble point pressure is given by p b = Σ z j p vj ------- (1) Therefore, we iterate for bubble pt. temperature (T B ) using the values of P vi from Fig 2-8. The mole fractions of compounds A and B are 0.665 and 0.335 respectively. The calculations are shown in the table: 1st iteration 2nd iteration 3rd iteration Component z T B 90 T B 85 T B 86 1 0.67 p V1 7.5 p V1 6.7 p V1 6.90 2 0.33 p V2 1.7 p V2 1.4 p V2 1.25 1 ∑z i p vi = 5.59 ∑z i p vi = 4.95 ∑z i p vi = 5.04 The bubble point temperature of the mixture is around 86°F. We know that the dew point pressure of the mixture is given by p d = 1/ Σ (z j /p vj ) ------ (2) Therefore, we iterate for T D once again using values of p vi from Fig. 2-8The mole fractions of compounds A and B are 0.665 and 0.335 respectively. The calculations are shown in the table. 1st iteration 2nd iteration 3rd iteration Component z T D 150 T D 110 T D 115 1 0.67 p V1 23 p V1 11 p V1 12 2 0.33 p V2 5 p V2 2.1 p V2 2.35 1 1/(∑z i p vi ) = 10.51 1/(∑z i p vi ) = 4.59 1/(∑z i p vi ) = 5.10 The dew point temperature is around 115°F .
3 Problem 12-17 Given: Non-ideal Solution Propane - 25 lb n-butane - 15 lb n-pentane - 20 lb n-hexane - 10 lb Temperature = 160°F Solution: Molecular weight of propane = 44lb/lbmol Molecular weight of n-butane = 58lb/lbmol Molecular weight of n-pentane = 72lb/lbmol
