Unformatted text preview: from condensation of acetone with ∆Hvap = 237 Btu/lb and a molecular weight of 58.08 = 14.9(58.08)(237) = 205,000 Btu/h Energy available from the cooling of evaporated water from 90oF to 80oF = 22(18)(0.44)(90-80) = 2,000 Btu/h Total available energy = 205,000 + 2,000 = 207,000 Btu/h Energy required - Energy available = 423,000 - 207,000 = 216,000 Btu/h This energy must come from cooling of the water absorbent from 90oF to T , and condensed acetone from 78oF to T. Therefore, using a CP of 0.53 for liquid acetone, 216,000 = 14.9(58.08)(78-T) + 1,722(18)(1.0)(90-T) Solving, T = temperature of exiting liquid = 83oF. The mol% acetone in the entering gas = 15/702 x 100% = 2.14 %. This is outside of the explosive limits range of 2.5 to 13 mol%. Exercise 2.17 Subject: Volumetric flow rates of entering and exiting streams of an adsorber for removing nitrogen from subquality natural gas. Given: Temperature and pressure of feed gas and two product gases. Composition of the feed gas. Specification of 90% removal of nitrogen and a 97% methane natural gas product. Assumptions: Applicability of the Redlich-Kwong equation of state. Find: Volumetric flow rates of the entering and exiting gas streams in actual ft3/h. Analysis: Removal of nitrogen = 0.9(176) = 158.4 lbmol/h Nitrogen left in natural gas = 176 - 158.4 = 17.6 lbmol/h Methane in natural gas product = 17.6(97/3) = 569.1 lbmol/h Material balance summary: Component Nitrogen Methane Totals Temperature, oF Pressure, psia lbmol/h: Feed gas 176 704 880 70 800 Waste gas 158.4 134.9 293.3 70 280 Natural gas 17.6 569.1 586.7 100 790 Using the ChemCAD simulation program, the following volumetric flow rates are computed using the Redlich-Kwong equation of state: Stream Feed gas Waste gas Natural gas Actual volumetric flow rate, ft3/h 5,844 5,876 4,162 Exercise 2.18 Subject: Estimation of partial fugacity coefficients of propane and benzene using the R-K equation of state. Given: From Example 2.5, a vapor mixture of 39.49 mol% propane and 60.51 mol% benzene at 400oF and 410.3 psia. Assumptions: Applicability of the Redlich-Kwong equation of state. Find: Partial fugacity coefficients Analysis: From Example 2.5, the following conditions and constants apply, where the Redlich-Kwong constants, A and B, for each component are computed from Eqs. (2-47) and (2-48) respectively. T = 477.6 K P = 2829 kPa ZV = 0.7314 R = 8.314 kPa-m3/kmol-K A = 0.2724 B = 0.05326 From Eqs.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
