with a density of 1. Of the total depth in the separator is 1m and the interface is to be 0. from aqueous wash liquid having a density of 1.6m from the vessel floor. (a) what should the height of the heavy-liquid overflow leg be. and (b) how much would an error of 50mm in this height affect the position of the interface? .109 kg/m3.McCabe • 2.020 kg/m3.4 A continuous gravity decanter is to separate chlorobenzene.

109 kg/m3 Height (aqueous wash liquid) = ? • Density (aqueous wash liquid) = 1.6m .020 kg/m3 Height (total) = 1m • Height (chlorobenzene) = 0.• Given: • Density (chlorobenzene) = 1.

water across an air filter.• 2.8 A U-tube manometer indicates a pressure drop of 10in. The air is at 26°C and a gauge pressure of 60lbf/in2. (a) what is the pressure drop in lbf/in2 and in atm? (b) What percentage of error is introduced if the density of the air in the manometer lead is neglected? .

Given: • Temperature (air) = 26°C • Pressure drop = 10in water • Pressure (gauge) = 60lbf/in2 .

All units should be properly arrange in order to cancel the units correctly.Practice Problems • 1. what actions need to be taken in each step of the grid method? Answer: Using the grid method in conversion of units.8 In your own words. .

Derive a formula for the pressure within the bubble relative to the outside atmospheric pressure.• A spherical soap bubble has an inside radius R. and a surface tension σ. . What is the pressure difference for a bubble with a 4 mm radius? Assume σ is the same as for pure water. a film thickness t.

• Solution: σL = F σ(4x2πR) = P(A) 8πRσ = P(4πR2) P = 4σ/R .

• If R=4mm Solution: P = 4σ/R P = 4(0.073 N/m)/(0.0 N/m2 .004m) P = 73.
