The exit gas from an alcohol fermenter consists of an air-CO2 mixture containing 10 mol% CO2

that is to be absorbed in a 5.0 N solution of triethanolamine, which contains 0.04 mol of carbon

dioxide per mole of amine. If the column operates isothermally at 25°C, if the exit liquid

contains 80% of the CO2 in the feed gas to the absorber, and if the absorption is carried out in

a six-theoretical-plate column, calculate: (a) Moles of amine solution required per mole of feed

gas (b) Exit gas composition
