Unformatted text preview: ights are approximate because they are based on values of HOG that are
assumed constant over the packed sections, which is not the case because m varies.
(e) Compute pressure drops for the packed sections from the correlation of Billet and Schultes.
The pressure drop per unit height of packed bed is given by Eq. (6115),
