A device is being designed to separate into components a natural gas consisting of CH4 and C2H6 in which the mole fraction of C2H6, denoted by y, may vary from 0.05 to 0.50. The device will receive natural gas at 208C, 1 atm with a volumetric flow rate of 100 m3 /s. Separate streams of CH4 and C2H6 will exit, each at 208C, 1 atm. Heat transfer between the device and its surroundings occurs at 208C. Ignoring kinetic and potential energy effects, plot versus y the minimum theoretical work input required at steady state, in kW.
