Question #25485

What volume of CH4 is needed to 30t HCOOH synthesis if its yield is 90%

Expert's answer

Scheme of this synthesis is :

CH4 ------> HCOOH

If yield is 90% and mass is 30 t, theoretical mass is 30 * 100/90 = 33.33 t

So the volume of CH4 is needed for this is:

& V & 33.33

CH4 ------> HCOOH

22.4 46

Answer: V= 16.23 L

CH4 ------> HCOOH
