Question: 5 20 points mass balances a distillation column is used...

Question details


5. (20 points) Mass Balances A distillation column is used to separate a 10 wt% ethanol and water,olution. The distillate has a composition of 95 wt% ethanol) The bottoms stream contains 5% of the incoming ethanol, and has a flow rate of 300 kg/hr. Draw a flowchart of the process, and label knowns and unknowns with units. Perform a Degree of Freedom analysis on the system. No 3 뎌 2 Write out the equations used to solve for the unknowns in your flowchart (DO NOT SOLVE THE EQUATIONS). 17.65 Extra Credit: (5 points) Determine the feed flow rate (kghr). 45
