Problem 37P

Problem 37P

A 30 percent (by mass) ethane and 70 percent methane mixture is to be blended in a 100-m3 tank at 130 kPa and 25°C. If the tank is initially evacuated, to what pressure should ethane be added before methane is added?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

 Friday Discussion o What does it mean that methane is 20x more harmful to the environment than CO2  methane is persistent in the atmosphere, it stays for about 10 years o greenhouse gases cause global warming, climate change  because more and more of it gets trapped o Why is methane better able to stay in the atmosphere than CO2 o CO2 outnumbers methane 5:1, methane is still greater problem o why is methane good at absorbing heat  loose bonds vibrate to absorb heat and give off energy o how does methane generate electricity  it is burned, combustible  turn a motor—some kind of a piston is pushed on to turn a crank, start a motor w
