(1-3), yA P nP1 1 yA P nP2 =9 (17) 2 and, yBP nP1 1 yBP nP2 2 = 1 9 (18) Combining (17) and (18), with component and total material balances around the separator gives the following equations that can be used with Eq. (6): yA P = 0.9 yA F 1 nF nP1 (19) Exercise 2.9 (continued) Analysis: (c) (continued) yA P = 01yA F . 2 nF nP2 (20) nP1 = nF 0.8 yA F + 01 . (21) nP2 = nF 0.9 − 0.8 yA F (22) (d) From Eq. (1-5), SPA,B = SFA / SFB = 361 1 − SFA / 1 − SFB (23) SFA = 0.95 is given. Combining this with Eq. (23), gives SFB = 0.05. This part then proceeds as in part (b) to give: nP1 = nF 0.90 yA F + 0.05 (24) nP2 = nF − nP1 or nP2 = nF 0.95 − 0.90 yA F (25) yA P = 0.95 yA F 1 yA P = 0.05 yA F 2 nF nP2 nF nP1 (26) (27) Equations (24) through (27) are combined with Eq. (6). A spreadsheet can be used to compute the dimensionless minimum work, Wmin RT0nF with the following results for Parts (a) through (d): Exercise 2.9 (continued) From the plot on the previous page, it is seen that the dimensionless minimum work is very sensitive to the feed mole fraction and to the product purities. From the derivation of the minimum work equations, it is seen that they are independent of the separation method and only depend on thermodynamics. To prove that the largest value of Wmin occurs for a feed with equimolar quantities of A and B, consider the case of a perfect separation, part (a), as given by Eq. (11). Let W = Wmin/nFRT0 and y = yA F . Then, the derivative of W with respect to y is, dW y −1 = − ln y + − ln(1 − y ) + (1 − y ) dy y 1− y = − [ ln y − ln(1 − y ) ] For min/max, set the derivative to zero and solve for y. Therefore, dW = 0 = − [ ln y − ln(1 − y ) ] dy Solving, y = 1 − y or y = 0.5. This is an equimolar feed. Furthermore, it gives a maximum value of W .
