Step 1

The basis of the calculation is taken as 100.0 kg/min of the feed entering the heater.

Mass fraction of F, G, and H are:

xF = 0.20

xG = 0.10

xH = 0.70

Mass flowrate of each of the components (F, G, and H) will thus be,

Note that he mass flowrate of each of the components is same in inlet and outlet to the heater.

Step 2

Kinetic and potential energy of the system is neglected along with any shaft work which is also neglected. Apply energy balance around the heater as:

Step 3

Reference temperature, Tref for the given process is taken as 20 ̊C.

For component F, heat of vaporization will be considered as its state changes fr...
