?The feed gas to a methanol synthesis reactor is composed of 75-mol-%

Chapter 14, Problem 14.33

(choose chapter or problem)

The feed gas to a methanol synthesis reactor is composed of 75-mol-% \(\mathrm{H}_{2}\), 15-mol-% CO, 5-mol-% \(\mathrm{CO}_{2}\), and 5-mol-% \(\mathrm{N}_{2}\). The system comes to equilibrium at 550 K and 100 bar with respect to the reactions:

\(2 \mathrm{H}_{2}(g)+\mathrm{CO}(g) \rightarrow \mathrm{CH}_{3} \mathrm{OH}(g) \quad \mathrm{H}_{2}(g)+\mathrm{CO}_{2}(g) \rightarrow \mathrm{CO}(g)+\mathrm{H}_{2} \mathrm{O}(g)\)

Assuming ideal gases, determine the composition of the equilibrium mixture.

Text Transcription:

H_2

CO_2

N_2

2H_2(g)+CO(g) rightarrow CH_3OH(g) H_2(g)+CO_2(g) rightarrow CO(g)+H_2O(g)
