G. Computer Problems

G1.

a. * Solve Example 4-4 with a process simulator.

b. Repeat this problem but with L/D = 1.5.

G2. Use a process simulator and find the optimum feed stage and total number of equilibrium stages for Problem 3.D6. Report the VLE correlation used. Record the values of Qcondenser and Qreboiler (in Btu/h).

G3.* Write a computer, spreadsheet, or calculator program to find the number of equilibrium stages and the optimum feed plate location for a binary distillation with a constant relative volatility. System will have CMO, saturated liquid reflux, total condenser, and a partial reboiler. The given variables will be F, zF, q xB, xD, α, and L0/D. Test your program by solving the following problems:

a. Separation of phenol from p-cresol. ...
