What's the difference between superphosphate and triple super phosphate fertilizer?..

Answer / paul christy

Superphosphate, 0-20-0, is made when rock phosphate is
treated with sulfuric acid to make calcium phosphate
(0-20-0) and calcium sulphate (gypsum.) Triple
Superphosphate, 0-46-0, is made by treating rock phosphate
with phosphoric acid. Triple Superphosphate has a much
higher phosphate content, as indicated by the 0-46-0
indicating 46% phosphate content. The benefit of the Triple
is that less needs to be used. However it costs more and
there is some evidence to suggest it ties up available
micronutrients (zinc, manganese, iron)in the soil requiring
the grower to supplement them.

ENGINEERING NUMERICAL METHODS - EXAMPLE 19.2 : For a mixture of benzene (B), toluene (T) and xylene (X), the equation applies where x for B, T and X will sum up to 1. The equation of x for each component is x = (L / V + 1) (F) / (L / V + K). The data of F for each component are : 0.5 for B, 0.35 for T, 0.15 for X. The data of K for each component are : 1.98 for B, 0.76 for T, 0.24 for X. When x for B + x for T + x for X = 1, find the values of (a) L / V; (b) x for each component of B, T, X respectively. You may use Excel program - Data : What-If-Analysis for Goal Seek to perform the iterative calculations.
