Unformatted text preview: University of California, Davis Department of Chemical Engineering & Materials Science ECH 157 - Process Dynamics and Control Fall 2011 MID-QUARTER EXAMINATION Instructions: This is a two-hour closed-book closed-notes examination. Please print your name on all answer sheets, label the problems clearly and put them in the right order, and staple your papers. Read all questions carefully; answer them concisely and neatly. You must hand in this exam paper along with your booklet; both will be returned to you after grading. Point values in the left-hand margins are based on 100 points total for the exam. Good Luck!!

Give a “good” answer for each question, and near the end of the exam, return to “polish” the answers. Problem 1: Consider the two-tank system shown in the figure below. The cross sectional area of tank 1 is 4 ft 2 , and that of the second tank is 8 ft 2 . The head-flow resistances are R 1 = 2 ft / ( ft 3 / min ) and R 2 = 4 ft / ( ft 3 / min ) , respectively....
