Question

Describe the purpose of distillation (or fractional distillation) in the refining of crude oil.

Answer #1

Jack Slapdash was responsible for preparing the mixture for
fractional distillation. He noticed after the distillation was
complete that there was both 2-pentanone and 3-pentanone in the
hood and he is not sure which one he actually used. After the
distillation was complete he took a carbon nmr spectrum of his pot
residue (pentanone) and noticed that there were only three signals
after the solvent and reference signals were identified. Did Jack
use 2-pentanone or 3-pentanone for his experiment? Explain...

During a fractional distillation of a mixture of two liquids,
how can you determine the boiling points of the liquids that are
seaparated? Please explain.

Any
sources of error will happen in the lab of fractional distillation
and elimination reaction? I do not have much information to provide
with. In this lab, 2-methyl-2-butanol reacted with H2SO4 and
2-chloro-2-methylbutane reacted with KOH (1-propanol).
Please explain the sources of error and way to improve.

Sketch or list a potential sequence of steps in the production
of gasoline from crude oil.

A machine is to fill barrels with 160 L of crude oil
with a standard deviation of 2.3 L. Suppose that the average amount
of oil approximately follows a normal distribution. Suppose you
collected a random sample of 25 barrels and calculate their mean
volume of oil to be 156.3 L.
a. Under an 8% level of significance, what should the
rejection criterion be in terms of the amount of oil in the sample
of 25 barrels?
b. Suppose that...

Collar hedge: Using the NYMEX Crude Oil Call and Put
information in the Appendix, answer the questions
below.
Lauren Simkins E&P wishes to construct a collar hedging
strategy. Lauren Simkins, the CEO, tells you she wants you to
construct a hedge to protect the firm from declining crude oil
prices for upcoming production. The CEO states that you are to buy
a put option that gives crude oil price protection for a minimum of
$100 per barrel. She tells you...

Problem 2.31. Suppose that there are no
storage costs for crude oil and the interest rate for borrowing
or lending is 5% per annum. How could you make money if
the June and December futures contracts for a particular
year trade at $50 and $56?You could go long one June oil
contract and short one December contract. In June you take delivery
of the oil borrowing $80 per barrel at 5% to meet cash outflows.
The interest accumulated over six...

Suppose the Marginal Benefit and Marginal Cost for crude oil
at any given period is:
MB=159−2.1QandMC=36+0.9Q
Where price is measured in dollars and quantity is measured in
barrels. The total oil reserve is 50 tons.
assume that society needs to allocate the reserve across the
current and future period(2 periods,5 years each)
suppose the discount rate is zero what is the socially
efficient quantity for period 1?

A crude oil tower carbon steel overhead pipeline has been
shutdown due to an accident. The minimum wall thickness required is
0.15 in. The current corrosion rate is 40 mils/year. Another
shutdown for inspection is scheduled to take place after two years.
