Dry methane is supplied by a compressor and precooling system to the cooler of aLinde

Chapter 9, Problem 9.15

(choose chapter or problem)

Dry methane is supplied by a compressor and precooling system to the cooler of a
Linde liquid-methane system (Fig. 9.6) at 180 bar and 300 K. The low-pressure methane
leaves the cooler at a temperature 6°C lower than the temperature of the incoming
high-pressure methane. The separator operates at 1 bar, and the product is saturated
liquid at this pressure. What is the maximum fraction of the methane entering the
cooler that can be liquefied? The NIST Chemistry WebBook (http://webbook.nist.
gov/chemistry/fluid/) is a source of data for methane.
