A mixture of n-hexane vapor and air leaves a solvent recovery unit and flows through a 70-cm diameter duct at a velocity of 3.00 m/s. At a sampling point in the duct the temperature is 40°C, the pressure is 850 mm Hg. and the dew point of the sampled gas is 25°C. The gas is fed to a condenser in which it is cooled at constant pressure, condensing 70% of the hexane in the feed.
- Perform a degree-of-freedom analysis to show that enough information is available to calculate flic required condenser outlet temperature (°C) and cooling rate (kW).
