Estimate the gas diffusivity from Eq. (3-36), where from Table 3.1, . . . V = 131 for water, and V = 15.9 + 4( 2.31) + 611 = 312 for methanol and molecular weights are 32 for methanol and 18 for water.

Therefore, mV/L = (2.50)(1,368)/(2,570) = 1.33 mV From Eq. (7.51), for NOR PAC, H OG = H G + H L = 0.69 + (1.33)(0.50) = 1.36 m = 4.4 ft L mV For Montz, H OG = H G + H L = 0.073 + (1.33)(0.048) = 0.14 m = 0.45 ft L (d) The packed height is given by Eq. (6-127), lT = HOGNOG dy y −y Apply this equation to the rectifying section and to the stripping section, using the McCabeThiele diagrams developed in Exercise 7.41. Calculate NOG for each section, using from Table 6.7 for EM diffusion, N OG = * For the rectifying section, the limits on y from the feed to the distillate are 0.64 to 0.915. The difference, y*-y is almost constant at an average value of approximately 0.065. Therefore, (NOG)RS = ∆y/( y*-y) = (0.915-0.64)/0.065 = 4.2. Therefore, Packed height for NOR PAC = (1.5)(4.2) = 6.3 ft Packed height for Montz = (0.68)(4.2) = 2.9 ft For the stripping section, after accounting for the partial reboiler, the limits on y from the bottom to the feed are 0.05 to 0.68. The difference, y*-y varies from 0.12 at y = 0.05, to 0.23 at y = 0.17, to 0.19 at y = 0.40, to 0.09 at y = 0.59, to 0.03 at y = 0.68 Using the trapezoidal method to solve the integral, ∆y (0.17 − 0.05) (0.40 − 017) 0.59 − 0.40 (0.68 − 0.59) .
