Answer / giri
because spheres are having constant surface per unit area.
so distribution of preesures will b equal at all points.

Answer / murthy
there are mainly two considerations before designing
storage vessel of flammable liquids.
(1)the temperature removal should be very fast,there is lot
of heat loss in spherical design,than tubular one,so heat
removal is more.
equilibrilium between vapor and liquid will shifted towards
liquid side when stored in spherical cylinders.
(2) requirement of inert gas for padding is greatly reduced
in case of spherical cylinders as vapor pressure of liquid
is reduced due to reason 1

I am a Diploma Chemical Engineer by Nirma Uni; and BEng (Hons) Energy & Environmental Engineer by Napier Uni; Edinburg, UK. HPCL chemical engineering test will held on 14th July,09. So, Please send me some previous chemical engineering papers Objective types Or material to give the test.
Hi. I have completed my masters in chemical engineering from M S University in year 2008 and now going to do MS Chemical engineering in Lamar University. I am planning to appear for interview in two weeks from now. What are the expected questions from VO regarding masters after masters ? and wat should i expect to give reply ? kindly give your suggestions. Thanks

ENGINEERING MATHEMATICS - EXAMPLE 8.4 : Let 1 ^ 1 = 1, 2 ^ 2 = 4, 3 ^ 3 = 27. By using the Excel computer programming - either by Solver or Goal Seek, find the value of v for the Van der Waals equation (P - a / v ^2) (v - b) = RT where a = 18.82, b = 0.1193, P = 2, R = 0.082, T = 5000 for benzene. Describe briefly how to use Solver and Goal Seek in Excel program of computer to find the solution quickly.
ELECTRICAL TECHNOLOGY - EXAMPLE 16.3 : In the design of a solar power system steps of calculations below are followed : (a) The power output of the inverter of the solar panel is 100 watts. What is the power input, Pin to the inverter when the efficiency of the inverter is 50 %? (b) If the rated power of the inverter is 300 watts, how many inverter is needed for the solar panel? (c) Charge controller of V = 12 volts is used to supply power to the inverter. What is the input current I to the inverter? (d) If the charge controller capacity is 10 A, how many charge controllers are needed? (e) If a biochemical mixer consumes 100 watts, running for 2 hours per day, what is the energy consumption in kilowatt hour per day? (f) What is the input energy needed when the efficiency of the inverter is 50 %? (g) If your area receives 2.88 hours of full sunlight per day, how much energy, in kilowatt hour can be produced per day when one solar panel can produce 20 watts of power? (h) If you know that you have to produce total energy as the answer for (f), how many solar panels are needed? (i) Each V = 12 V battery has 5 ampere hours. If the total energy needed is in answer (f), then how many batteries are needed to run the biochemical mixer if without sunlight for 3 days?
