PGE 312 - FALL 2003 Physical and Chemical Behavior of Petroleum Fluids Homework 10- Key 1/14 PROBLEM 13-8 1. Perform a phase calculation in the separator to determine the composition of the liquid and gas phases leaving the separator a. Determine the amount of moles of both components by using: b. Determine Zi (this is already given in the problem) using: c. Determine the vapor pressure of both components by using the Cox plot (Chapter 2 McCain) d. Use the trial and error procedure to determine either Xi or Yi by the following 1 . First, assume a value of either ng or nl (depending upon the equation being used), calculate either Xi or Yi. Repeat the calculation until a pre-fixed tolerance is reached e. If the first equation is used, then calculate Yi using: Component MW (lb/lb-mole) Z Ki Xi Yi Yi*Mi Methane 16.043 0.2648 27.000 0.0234 0.6321 10.1401 Ethane 30.070 0.0951 5.000 0.0368 0.1838 5.5283 Propane 44.097 0.0961 1.550 0.0789 0.1223 5.3923 I-Butane 58.123 0.0173 0.680 0.0198 0.0135 0.7832 n-Butane 58.123 0.0501 0.500 0.0625 0.0312 1.8161 I-Pentane 72.150 0.0188 0.200 0.0275 0.0055 0.3974 n-Pentane 72.150 0.0281 0.170 0.0419 0.0071 0.5138 Hexanes 86.177 0.0378 0.060 0.0603 0.0036 0.3116 Heptantes plus 208.000 0.3919 0.002 0.6488 0.0010 0.2024 Totall 1.000 0.9999 1.0001 25.0851 nl1 0.6033 ng1 0.3967 1 It is highly recommended to write a small routine to perform this procedure; you can use visual basic in excel or C++ _ 11 1 NN i i ii vi g z x p n p ==  +−   ∑∑ _ 1 i i l vi z y p n p i Mass n MW = 1 i i N i i n z n = = vj p yx p =
