Four strain gauges, with specification given below, are available to measure the torque on a cylindrical shaft 4 cm in diameter connecting a motor and load. (a) Draw clearly labelled….
A straw oil that is used to absorb benzene from coke-oven gas, is to be steam-stripped in a sieve-plate column at 1 atm to recover benzene
Henry’s law is used to approximate the equilibrium data at the operating temperature. 100 moles of oil entering the absorber contains 8 mol % benzene, 75% of which is to recovered. The steam leaving the absorber contains 3 mol % benzene. The oil is assumed to be nonvolatile. Additionally, it is given that when the oil phase contains 10 mol % benzene, its partial pressure is 5.07 kPa.
