Answer to Question #132185 in Chemical Engineering for z

Question #132185
Carbon dioxide and hydrogen gases are passed through a catalytic reactor and methyl alcohol is obtained according to the following reaction.

CO2 + 3H2 CH2OH + H2O Gas mixture enters the reactor at a stoichiometric rate and at 25 ° C.

There is 0.5% nitrogen gas in the feed stream. 57% conversion takes place in a single pass through the reactor. It is not required to have more than 2% nitrogen in the reactor. Methyl alcohol and water vapor in the gas mixture leaving the reactor are condensed in a separator and separated at 70 ° C. The remaining gases (CO2, H2 and N) are recycled. However, some of the gas mixture is thrown out for nitrogen cleaning.The temperature of the discharged gas mixture is 100 ° C and the returning gas mixture temperature is 90 ° C.

Accordingly, if 1 mol of methyl alcohol is produced,

Calculate the amount of insurgency

Note C = 91 J / mol. ° C for the liquid methyl alcohol.
