Given: A feed gas mixture, F, of A and B to be separated at infinite surroundings temperature, T0, into two products, P1 and P2. Assumptions: Ideal gas law and ideal gas solution at temperature T0. Isobaric at P0. Find: Derive an equation for the Wmin in terms of the mole fractions of the feed and products. Plot Wmin/RT0nF versus the mole fraction of A in the feed for: (a) A perfect separation. (b) A separation with SFA = 0.98 and SFB = 0.02. (c) A separation with SRA = 9.0 and SRB = 1/9. (d) A separation with SFA = 0.95 and SRB = 361 Determine the sensitivity of Wmin to product purities. Does Wmin depend on the separation method? Prove that the largest value of Wmin occurs for an equimolar feed. Analysis: From Eq. (4), Table 2.1, Wmin = nb − out From Eq. 2-1, b = h − T0 s nb (1) in (2) Combining Eqs. (1) and (2) for one feed, F, in and two products, P1 and P2, out: Wmin = nP1 hP1 + nP2 hP2 − T0 nP1 sP1 + nP2 hP2 − nF hF + T0nF sF (3) However, for isothermal separation of an ideal gas mixture, the change in enthalpy = 0. Therefore, from Eq. (3), Wmin = T0nF sF − T0 nP1 sP1 + nP2 hP2 (4) From Eq. (3), Table 2.4, for an ideal gas mixture at T0 and P0 , s = −R yi ln yi i (5) Exercise 2.9 (continued) Analysis: (continued) Substituting Eq. (5) into Eq.
