Question: each month a company purchases a barrel with a volume...

Question details

Each month, a company purchases a barrel, with a volume of 0.21 m3 , of a cleaning fluid. 80% of the fluid in the barrel is lost to the atmosphere while the rest remains as a residue. If the density of the fluid is 2.5 g/mL, what is the monthly mass emission rate?

Because of a new law, the fluid that the company used in Problem 1 has been banned. They are now using a new fluid that is a one-sixth as volatile as the former fluid and has a density of 2.8 g/mL. Assume that the amount of residue remains the same, and estimate the monthly mass emission rate of the new fluid. Also, determine the annual volume of fluid that will be saved because the new fluid is less volatile.
