Question Solved1 Answer One method to determine the flow rate of a turbulently flowing stream is to inject a small, metered amount of some easily dispersed fluid and then to measure the concentration of this fluid in a sample of the mixed stream withdrawn a suitable distance downstream. In pharmaceutical plants, there are often many inert gas streams (i.e., streams that contain mostly nonreacting gases). In a particular plant, there is a process stream that is composed of 95mol% N2(inert) and 5 mol% O2. To determine the flow rate of this process stream, O2 is injected at a flow rate of 16.3 mol/hr. A downstream sample analyzes the O2 content at 10 mol%. You can assume that no reactions occur in the pipe and that the flows are operating at a steady-state. a) How many balanced equations can you write? How many of these are linearly independent? b) Calculate the flow rate of the process stream containing 95 mol% N2 and 5 mol% O2.

a)Since there are 2 components, we can write two indpenednetequatinos. We can also wirte overall balance equation.So there are two equations andonly two are independentb) Let F = flow rate of stream containing 95% nitrogen and 5%oxygenLet F1= down stream flow ratewriting nitrogen balane givesNitrogen in nitrogen ri ...
