Question: a gas mixture containing 25 wt carbon dioxide co2 and...

Question details

A gas mixture containing 25 wt% carbon dioxide (CO2) and 75 wt% methane (CH4) flows through a pipe with an internal diameter of 75 mm at a velocity of 25 m/s. Molar mass of CO2 = 44.01 g/mol Molar mass of CH4 = 16.04 g/mol a) Draw a flow chart for this process b) Calculate the volumetric flow rate of the gas in m3 /s. c) If the density of the gas in 6.2 kg/m3 , what is the mass flow rate of the gas in kg/s? d) Calculate the mole fractions of the two gases in the mixture. e) Determine the fraction of CO2 that would have to be removed from the gas to yield a gas containing 10 mol% CO2.A gas mixture containing 25 wt% carbon dioxide (CO2) and 75 wt% methane (CH4) flows through a pipe with an internal diameter of 75 mm at a velocity of 25 m/s.
