Speciﬁc molar volume at STP: vstp V P m3 = = = 0.0224 n RT mol Thus the rela1onship between mass ﬂow rate and volumetric ﬂow rate at STP is: mexit ˙ ˙ = Qexit ⇥ 1 mol g ⇥ (44.07 ) 3 0.0224 m mol molecular mass of propane g mexit = 22271.1 ˙ day g kg kg = 22271.1 ⇥( ) = 22.27 day 1000g day Now we are ready to apply axiom 1 Example CalculaKon cont. Select a Control Volume •  Rule 1: A cut is been made at the exit of the tank were informa1on is given •  Rule 2: There is no required informa1on that would generate another cut •  Rule 3: The surface of the control volume is selected where v · n is known •  Rule 4: The surface speciﬁed by Rule 3 encloses the region for which vo...
