## Quiz2. Dilute Gas Absorption/Daorption in Packed Columns

Date2l Janunry

2009

1. A gas stream with 5 percent (by volume) NH3 (MW = 1A in air (MW = 28.8), and a flow rate of l0 mr/min is to be scrubbed with water to lower the concentration to 0.02 percent (by votume). The system may be assumed to be isothermal at 20 oC. Calculate the value of Noc if the water flow rate is 1.25 times the minimnm. (You must detennine it graphically)

(a) What is the minimum air flow rate required for the separation.

(b) Draw the operating line for an air flow of 1.5 times the minimum air flow. What is the
volumetric flow rate of air at this condition?

(c) Determine the number of transfer units for the overall liquid phase driving force for
times the minimum air flow.
