the benzene fed to the column leaves in the bottom stream. The feed rate is 2000 kg/h.
Determine the overhead flow rate and the mass flow rates of benzene and toluene in
the bottom stream.

Persamaan umum
𝐹 =𝐷+𝑊
2000 = 𝐷 + 𝑊
𝑊 = 2000 − 𝐷 … . (1)

Persamaan neraca benzena

0,45𝐹 = 0,95𝐷 + 0,08𝑊
0,45 2000 = 0,95𝐷 + 0,08𝑊
90000 = 95𝐷 + 8𝑊 … . (2)

Persamaan (1) + (2)

90000 = 95𝐷 + 8(2000 − 𝐷)
74000 = 87𝐷 → 𝐷 = 850,57
𝑊 = 2000 − 850,5 = 1149,43

Cek dengan persamaan neraca toluena

0,55𝐹 = 0,05𝐷 + 0,92𝑊
0,55 2000 = 0,05 850,57 + 0,92 1149,43
1100 = 42,3 + 1057,47 → 1100 = 1100 (𝑄𝐸𝐷)

Maka W = 1149,43 kg/h

D = 850,57 kg/h

𝜌  M L-3
V  L T-1
M  M T-1
Maka untuk mendapatkan persamaan untuk mendapat A
L2 = (M L-3)-1 (L T-1) (M T-1)
