CHAPTER 472
Problem 4.1A
A steel tank having a capacity of 25 m
3
holds carbon dioxide at 30˚C and 1.6 atm.Calculate the weight, in grams, of the carbon dioxide.
Solution
T = 30˚C = 30 + 273.15 = 303Kp = 1.6 atmV = 25 m
3
Use pV = nRTThe gas constant has to be chosen to be consistent with the units of pressure, temperature,and volume. Use standard conditions to calculate RR =1.00atm22.415m

The problem can be solved by determining the number of moles of oxygen and nitrogenand solving for the total pressure at the final conditions. Then the partial pressures are calculatedusing the mole fractions.

Problem 4.1C
A steel container has a volume of 200 m
3
. It is filled with nitrogen at 22˚C andatmospheric pressure. If the container valve is opened and the container heated to 200˚C,calculate the fraction of the nitrogen which leaves the container.
Solution
The solution involves determining the number of moles of nitrogen in the tank at the finalgiven temperature and pressure (T

and p

), and at the initial conditions, and subtracting.T

Chlorine gas containing 2.4 percent O
2
is flowing through an earthenware pipe. The gasflow rate is measured by introducing air into it at the rate of 115 m
3
/min. Further down the line,after mixing is complete, the gas is found to contain 10.85 percent O
2
. How many m
3
of theinitial gas were flowing per minute through the pipe?
Solution
The problem is similar to other nonreacting material balance problems. It is convenientto imagine the pipeline between the point of injection of air to the point of sampling as a mixer.The process may be considered to be a steady state process without reaction.
