Question: this is a mass transfer question...

Question details

2. Two large containers, one containing predominantly ammonia (A) and one containing predominantly nitrogen(B) are connected by a uniform tube that is 0.1 m long, where steady state mass transfer is occurring. The pressure is 1.1032 x 105 Pa and the temperature is 298 K within the closed system. At the end of the tube closest to the ammonia tank, Pa1 is 1.013 x 104 Pa and at the other end of the tube, PA2 is 0.507 x 104 Pa. The diffusivity of ammonia in nitrogen is 0.230 x 104m2/s. a. b. c. Calculate flux of A. Calculate flux of B How do the values compare? Describe what this result physically means about the systemThis is a Mass transfer question.
