Use Figs. 6.36a, b, and c to compute flooding velocity, following Example 6.13. From the ideal gas law, ρV = PMV/RT = (1.05)(18.1)/[0.730(207 + 460)] = 0.039 lb/ft3 For the liquid, which is mainly water, use ρL = 1.00 g/cm3 = 62.4 lb/ft3 and µ L = 0.27 cP.

Therefore, the holdup is independent of the gas rate. Follow Example 6.12.
