Mixing and Solution
When two different liquids are mixed or when a gas or solid is
dissolved into a liquid, bonds are broken between neighboring
molecules.
Net release in energy will result when the bonds are broken and
solution is form.
Suppose we mix 1 mol of pure liquid of sulfuric acid with water at
specified temperature and pressure
The energy balance for this constant pressure-process is given by:
The pure solute and solvent at the same T and P is the Heat of
Solution at that temperature and pressure.

Adiabatic Mixing
Adiabatic mixing is considered to have taken place if substances are mixed
in a well-insulated system, thus assuming no heat loss to its surrounding (i.e.
Q = 0). This is the condition in which the maximum temperature the product
solution can achieve.
The concentration of product solution can be estimated as follows;

Vaporization
A 30 wt% NH
3
solution at 100 psia is fed at a rate of 100 lb
m
/h to a
tank in which the pressure is 1 atm. The enthalpy of the feed
solution relative to the reference conditions is 100 Btu/lb
m
. The
vapor composition is to be 89 wt% NH
3
. Determine the temperature
of the stream leaving the tank, the mass fraction of NH
3
in the liquid
product, the flow rate of the liquid and vapor product streams, and
the rate at which heat must be transferred to the vaporizer.
