Unformatted text preview: together with the y-x table are solved for x and W/W0. Eq. (2) must be integrated numerically. One way to do this is to fit the equilibrium data to a polynomial equation. Using the data from x = 0.2782 to 0.9622, the fit to a cubic equation is: y = 0.913992 + 0.25125x - 0.315062x2 + 0.133892x3 (3) Substitute Eq. (3) into Eq. (2) and integrate using a spreadsheet with the trapezoidal rule for a ∆x increment of 0.01 starting from x = 0.85 with decreasing values of x. As an example, using this method for the first four increments, the integral is equal to ∆x[ 0.5fx=0.40 + fx=0.39 + fx=0.38 + fx=0.37 + 0.5fx=0.36 ], where f = 1/(y-x). At each step , W/W0 is computed and then the mole fraction of water in the cumulative distillate from Eq. (1), repeating until a value for the latter of 0.98 is achieved. The complete spreadsheet is given below. From it, the following result is obtained: x = 0.22 and W/W0 = 0.1711. x 0.85 0.84 0.83 0.82 0.81 0.80 0.79 0.78 0.77 0.76 0.75 0.74 0.73 0.72 0.71 0.70 0.69 0.68 0.67 0.66 0.65 0.64 0.63 0.62 0.61 y 0.98215 0.98209 0.98204 0.98199 0.98195 0.98191 0.98186 0.98182 0.98178 0.98174 0.98169 0.98165 0.98159 0.98154 0.98148 0.98141 0.98134 0.98126 0.98117 0.98107 0.98096 0.98084 0.98071 0.98057 0.98041 f =1/(y-x) Value of Integral 7.567 7.038 6.577 6.173 5.816 5.497 5.212 4.955 4.722 4.510 4.316 4.138 3.975 3.824 3.684 3.554 3.432 3.319 3.214 3.115 3.022 2.934 2.851 2.773 2.700 0.0730 0.1411 0.2049 0.2648 0.3214 0.3749 0.4257 0.4741 0.5203 0.5644 0.6067 0.6472 0.6862 0.7238 0.7600 0.7949 0.8286 0.8613 0.8930 0.9236 0.9534 0.9823 1.0105 1.0378 W/W0 y in cum distillate 0.9296 0.8684 0.8148 0.7674 0.7252 0.6874 0.6533 0.6224 0.5944 0.5687 0.5452 0.5235 0.5035 0.4849 0.4677 0.4516 0.4366 0.4226 0.4094 0.3971 0.3854 0.3744 0.3640 0.3542 0.9820 0.9820 0.9820 0.9819 0.9819 0.9819 0.9819 0.9819 0.9819 0.9819 0.9818 0.9818 0.9818 0.9818 0.9818 0.9818 0.9818 0.9817 0.9817 0.9817 0.9817 0.9817 0.9817 0.9816 0.60 0.59 0.58 0.57 0.56 0.55 0.54 0.53 0.52 0.51 0.50 0.49 0.48 0.47 0.46 0.45 0.44 0.43 0.42 0.41 0.40 0.39 0.38 0.37 0.36 0.35 0.34 0.33 0.32 0.31 0.30 0.29 0.28 0.27 0.26 0.25 0.24 0.23 0.22 0.21 0.20 0.98024 0.98006 0.97985 0.97964 0.97940 0.97915 0.97888 0.97859 0.97828 0.97794 0.97759 0.97721 0.97681 0.97638 0.97593 0.97546 0.97495 0.97442 0.97386 0.97327 0.97265 0.97200 0.97132 0.97060 0.96986 0.96908 0.96826 0.96741 0.96652 0.96559 0.96463 0.96362 0.96258 0.96150 0.96037 0.95921 0.95800 0.95674 0.95544 0.95410 0.95271 2.630 2.564 2.501 2.441 2.384 2.330 2.279 2.229 2.182 2.137 2.094 2.053 2.013 1.975 1.938 1.903 1.869 1.837 1.806 1.775 1.746 1.718 1.691 1.665 1.640 1.615 1.592 1.569 1.547 1.525 1.505 1.485 1.465 1.446 1.428 1.410 1.393 1.376 1.360 1.344 1.329 1.0645 1.0904 1.1158 1.1405 1.1646 1.1882 1.2112 1.2338 1.2558 1.2774 1.2986 1.3193 1.3396 1.3596 1.3791 1.3983 1.4172 1.4357 1.4539 1.4718 1.4895 1.5068 1.5238 1.5406 1.5571 1.5734 1.5894 1.6052 1.6208 1.6362 1.6513 1.6663 1.6810 1.6956 1.7099 1.7241 1.7382 1.7520 1.7657 1.7792 1.7926 0.3...

### What students are saying

• 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.
