Sequence • Molar heat capacities of a gas mixture • Problem .

 These are known as molar heat capacities and are denoted by cpc and cvc  Molar heat capacities are defined as follows:  and Eq.Molar heat capacities of a gas mixture  It is often convenient to use the amount of substance in problems and to define the heat capacities in terms of amount of substance.20 . 6.

(a)  Also from Eq.17  Therefore.21 .Molar heat capacities of a gas mixture …Contd.  From Eq. 2. Eq. 6. 2. Eq. (a) becomes  Eq.9  Hence.

Molar heat capacities of a gas mixture …Contd.7  Now.(b) becomes Eq.15 Eq.(c) becomes Eq. Eq.22 .6. 2.20  Therefore. 6. 2.  From Eq. Eq. (b)  Also from Eq. (c)  And from Eq.

Molar heat capacities of a gas mixture …Contd. 6.25 .  and Eq. 6.23  By the Gibbs-Dalton Law.  Similarly Eq.  and  Therefore  Hence.24 & 6.

Molar heat capacities of a gas mixture …Contd.. cpp = 35. cp and cv for the mixture. 12% H2.27 kJ/kmolK.89 kJ/kmolK. 28 kg/kmol.14 kJ/kmolK. 3% CH4. • Problem: A producer gas has the following volumetric analysis 29% CO. cpp = 29. The values of cpp for the constituents are as follows: for CO. 44 kg/kmol. for CH4. 4% CO2. cpp = 29. for CO2. for CH4. for N2. 16 kg/kmol. cpp = 28. • The molar masses may taken as follows: for H2. Calculate the values of cpp . 52% N2.22 kJ/kmolK. . 2 kg/kmol.80 kJ/kmolK. cv. for H2. for N2. for CO2. cpp = 37.
