D. Problems

*Answers to problems with an asterisk are at the back of the book.

D1.* Repeat Example 10-1 for an average column pressure of 700 kPa.

D2.* Repeat Example 10-2, except calculate the diameter at the bottom of the column. For n-heptane: MW = 100.2, bp 98.4°C, sp gravity = 0.684, viscosity (98.4°C) = 0.205 cP, σ (98.4°C) = 12.5 dynes/cm.

D3. The calculations in Example 10-3 were done for conditions at the top of the column. Physical properties will vary throughout the column, but columns are normally constructed with identical trays, downcomers, weirs, etc., on every stage (this is simpler and cheaper). For a 12-foot diameter column, calculate entrainment, pressure drops, downcomer residence time, and weeping at the bottom of the column. ...
