Question: equimolar counter diffusion emd example 2 a large tank filled...

Question details

Equimolar Counter Diffusion (EMD) Example 2 A large tank filled with a mixture of methane and air is connected to a second tank filled with a different composition of methane and air. Both tanks are at 100 kN/m2 and 0°C. The connection between the tanks is a tube of 2 mm inside diameter and 150 mm long. Calculate the steady state rate of transport of methane through the tube when the concentration of methane is 90 mole percent in one tank and 5 mole percent in the other y molecular diffusion. The mass diffusivity of methane in air at 0°C and 100 kN/m2 is 1.57 x Assume that transport between the tanks is 10-5 m2/s. Tank
