View the step-by-step solution to:


(a) Draw a process-flow diagram. Compute the flow rates in kmol/h of each component in each of the two

products leaving column and show in a table.

(b) What is the percent purity of the n-butane in bottoms product?

(c) If the isobutane purity in the distillate is fixed at 95%, what %recovery of isobutane in the distillate will maximize the %purity of n-butane in the bottoms product and what is that maximum %purity of n-butane? For this scenario, calculate the component flowrates in both product streams.
