Question 5 of 20
A jacketed stirred tank with a provision for heat removal is used to mix sulphuric acid and water in a steady state flow process. H2SO4 (l) enters at a rate of 4 kg/h at 25 degreeC and H2O (l) enters at a rate of 6 kg/h at 10 degreeC. The following data are available:
Specific heat capacity of water = 4.2 kJ kg‒1K‒1.
Specific heat capacity of aqueous solution of 40 mass% H2SO4 = 2.8 kJ (kg solution)‒1 K‒1.
Assume the specific heat capacities to be independent of temperature.
Based on reference states of H2SO4 (l) and H2O (l) at 25 degreeC, the heat of mixing for aqueous solution
of 40 mass% H2SO4 = ‒ 650 kJ (kg H2SO4)‒1.
If the mixed stream leaves at 40oC, what is the rate of heat removal (in kJ/h)?Correct
Question 6 of 20
An ideal gas is adiabatically and irreversibly compressed from 3 bar and 300 K to 6 bar in a closed system. The work required for the irreversible compression is 1.5 times the work that is required for reversible compression from the same initial temperature and pressure to the same final pressure.
The molar heat capacity of the gas at constant volume is 30 J mol‒1 K‒1 (assumed to be independent of temperature); universal gas constant, R is 8.314 J mol‒1 K‒1; ratio of molar heat capacities is 1.277. The temperature (in K, rounded off to the first decimal place) of the gas at the final state in
the irreversible compression case isCorrect
Question 7 of 20
Consider a rigid solid sphere falling with a constant velocity in a fluid. The following data are known at the conditions of interest: viscosity of the fluid = 0.1 Pa s, acceleration due to gravity = 10 m/(s*s), density of the particle = 1180 kg/(m*m*m) and density of the fluid = 1000 kg(m*m*m). The diameter (in mm, rounded off to the second decimal place) of the largest sphere that settles in the Stokes’ law regime (Reynolds number <= 0.1), isCorrect
Question 8 of 20
A binary system at a constant pressure with species ‘1’ and ‘2’ is described by the two-suffix Margules equation Ge / RT = 3AB where Ge is the molar excess Gibbs free energy, R is the universal gas constant, T is the temperature and A,B are the mole fractions of species 1 and 2, respectively.
At a temperature T G1/RT = 1 and G2/RT = 2 where G1 and G2 are the molar Gibbs free energies of pure species 1 and 2 respectively.At the same emperature, g represents the molar Gibbs free energy of the mixture. For a binary mixture with 40 mole % of species 1, the value (rounded off to the second decimal place) of G/RT isCorrect
Question 9 of 20
The space between two hollow concentric spheres of radii 0.1 m and 0.2 m is under vacuum. Exchange of radiation (uniform in all directions) occurs only between the outer surface (S1) of the smaller sphere and the inner surface (S2) of the larger sphere. The fraction (rounded off to the second decimal place) of the radiation energy leaving S2, which reaches S1 isCorrect
Question 10 of 20
