    Consider 100g of CO2 calculate: Mass of O atom

    • A.

      72.72g

    • B.

      72g

    • C.

      77.2g

    • D.

      727.2g

    Correct Answer
    A. 72.72g
    Explanation
    The molar mass of CO2 is 44.01 g/mol. Since there is only one oxygen atom in each molecule of CO2, the molar mass of oxygen is 16.00 g/mol. To find the mass of the oxygen atom in 100g of CO2, we can use the ratio of the molar masses. The molar mass of oxygen is 16.00 g/mol, and the molar mass of CO2 is 44.01 g/mol. So, the mass of the oxygen atom in 100g of CO2 is (16.00 g/mol / 44.01 g/mol) * 100g = 36.35g. Therefore, the correct answer is 36.35g.

    • C.

      K= 198,F=40 ,R=654

    • D.

      K=452 ,F=23 ,R=500

    Correct Answer
    A. K=263 ,F=14 ,R=474
    Explanation
    The given temperature is -10 degrees Celsius. To convert it to Kelvin, we add 273 to the Celsius value, giving us 263 Kelvin. To convert it to Fahrenheit, we use the formula F = (C * 9/5) + 32, which gives us 14 degrees Fahrenheit. To convert it to Rankine, we use the formula R = (C + 273.15) * 9/5, giving us 474 Rankine. Therefore, the correct answer is K=263, F=14, R=474.

    A mixture of B and T with (Xb =0.5) is fed to a distillation column with a mass flow rate of (950 Kg/h), the distillate has (Xb =0.75) and the mass flow rate of the residue (600 kg/h) determine the mass composition of the residue?

    • A.

      0.35

    • B.

      350

    • C.

      0.75

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    A. 0.35
    Explanation
    The mass composition of the residue is 0.35. This can be determined by using the mass balance equation, which states that the mass flow rate of the feed is equal to the sum of the mass flow rates of the distillate and the residue. Since the mass flow rate of the feed is 950 kg/h and the mass flow rate of the residue is 600 kg/h, the mass flow rate of the distillate can be calculated as 950 kg/h - 600 kg/h = 350 kg/h. The mass composition of the residue is then calculated as the mass flow rate of the residue divided by the total mass flow rate of the residue and the distillate, which gives 600 kg/h / (350 kg/h + 600 kg/h) = 0.35.

    The process which no input or output is:

    • A.

      Semi batch

    • B.

      Semi continuous

    • C.

      Batch

    • D.

      continuous

    Correct Answer
    C. Batch
    Explanation
    Batch processing is a type of process where no input or output is continuously flowing. Instead, it involves processing a set amount of data or tasks at a time. In a batch process, the input is collected, processed together as a batch, and then the output is produced. This differs from continuous processing where input and output are continuously flowing, semi-continuous processing where there is some continuous flow but also some batch processing, and semi-batch processing where there is a combination of batch and continuous processing. Therefore, the correct answer is batch.

    • C.

      None

    Correct Answer
    A. 0
    Explanation
    The accumulation in steady states is 0 because in a steady state, there is no change or accumulation over time. This means that the value remains constant and does not increase or decrease. Therefore, the accumulation in steady states is none or zero.
