Question

n-butane vapor and liquid are in equilibrium (boiling) at 18.66 bars. Use the Peng Robinson EOS to determine the saturated liquid and saturated vapor molar volumes. Also determine the saturated liquid molar volume using the Rachett equation. In addition, use the Pitzer correlation for the Virial EOS to estimate the saturated vapor molar volume.

Answer #1

Antoine coefficients for: log10(Psat[mmHg])=A-B/(T[oC]+C)

Antoine constants are A=6.80776 B=935.77 C=238.789

For the given P=18.66 bar=18.66*760 mm Hg=14181.6 mm hg

T sat calculated from Antoine equation =113
^{o}C=273+113=386 K

The physical properties of n-butane are Tc=425 K,Pc=37.96 bar Vc=255 cm3/mol Zc=.274, acentric factor(w)=0.2

a) Peng-Robinson (P-R) equation of state has the following form:

*R
T
a(T)*

*P* =
----------- -
-------------------------------
(1)

* v -
b
v (v + b)* *+ b (v - b)*

Here, R is the gas constant, P is the
absolute pressure, T is the absolute temperature, v is the molar
volume, and *b* and *a(T)* are given by:

*R Tc*

*b* =
0.07780
----------
(2)

* Pc*

* R* ^{2}*Tc*
^{2}

*a(T)* = 0.45724 -------------
*a**(T) *
(3)

* Pc*

*a(**T)*
= [*1* + *k (1* - *( T/Tc )*
0.5*)*
]^{2}
(4)

*k*
= 0.37464 +
1.54226 *w* - 0.26992
*w*2
(5)

Here, *Tc* is the
critical (absolute) temperature, *Pc* is the
critical (absolute) pressure, and *w* is the
Pitzer *acentric factor*

a(T)=21797395 k=.6723 b=72.42

Substituting these in equation 1 we get which require iterative procedure

We get sat voume of gas= 1185 cm3/mol

Sat liquid volume =136.2 cm3/mol

b) Rachett equation:

V_{sat}=Vc Zc (1-Tr)^{2/7}

Tr=T/Tc= 386/425=0.9082

= 255*0.274(1-0.9082)^{2/7}= 35.31 cm3/mol

c)

Pitzer type correlations:

Z=Z^{0}+wZ^{1}

Pr= 18.66/37.96=0.4915 ,Tr= 0.9082

At these reduced conditions Z^{0}+wZ^{1} from
Lee kesseler tables we have

Z^{0}=0.5384 Z^{1}= -0.1161 and

Z=0.5384+(0.2*-0.1161)=0.51518

Z=PV/RT=V=RTZ/P=83.14*386*0.51518/18.66=886 cm3/mol

n-butane vapor and liquid are in equilibrium (boiling) at 18.66
bars. Use the Peng-Robinson equation of state to determine the
saturated liquid and saturated vapor molar volumes. Also determine
the saturated liquid molar volume using the Rachett equation. In
addition, use the Pitzer correlation for the Virial EOS to estimate
the saturated vapor molar volume.

n this exercise, weighed samples of a solid unknown containing
NaCl and NaHCO3 react with hydrochloric acid. The volume of the CO2
liberated by the reaction in the gas phase is measured with a gas
collection syringe. From the volume we can calculate the number of
moles of CO2 in the gas phase using the ideal gas
approximation.
Since the CO2 is generated in an aqueous environment (aqueous
HCl), some CO2 will dissolve in the liquid phase. The amount of...
