The shaft shown in Figure P11-4 was designed in Problem 10-19. For the data in row (a) of Table P11-1, and the corresponding diameter of shaft found in Problem 10-19,….
determine the possibility to separate components A and B via distillation process at 60 °C. [
Q1. A liquid vapor equilibrium experiment is conducted at 101.32 kPa using binary mixture with 30 mole% acetone (A) and 70 mole% methanol (B). Table Q1 shows the boiling point-equiibrium data. Assuming Raoult’s and Dalton’s laws apply. Table Q1: Boiling point-equiibrium data of acetone-methanol system at 101.32 kPa. (Source of Data: McCabe, W.L., Smith, J.C., and Harriott, P. (2005).
