Question: problem two aqueous hydrogen bromide solutions containing 10 wt hbr...

Question details

PROBLEM Two aqueous hydrogen bromide solutions containing 1.0 wt% HBr (SG = 1.0041) and 40.0 wt% HBr (SG = 1.3736) are mixed to form a 4.27 molar HBr solution (SG = 1.2340). What feed rate of the 40.0 wt% HBr solution would be required to produce 1.10 x 103 kg/hr of product? What is the feed ratio of liters of 1.0 wt% HBr solution to liters of 40.0 wt% HBr solution? SOLUTION OVERVIEW: You want to find the feed rate of the 40.0 wt% HBr solution needed to produce 1.10 x 103 kg/hr of product and the volumetric feed ratio of the two feed solutions. The first step is to make a process flow diagram Perform a degrees of freedom analysis to confirm that it is possible to find the process conditions. Use the molarity of the product solution to find the weight percent of HBr in the product stream. Then, find the weight percent of water in each stream. Write out the mass balance equations for HBr and water. Solve these equations simultaneously and convert the masses to volumes using the specific gravities This tutorial will walk you through the above steps. In future tutorial steps, the original problem statement and above solution overview will be in the hint panel as a referenceWhat is the shape of the correct flow diagram for this process? A.
