Question 80 - Liquid octane has a density of 703 kilograms per cubic metre and molar mass of 114.23 grams per mole. Its specific heat capacity is 255.68 J / (mol K). (a) Find the energy in J needed to increase the temperature of 1 cubic metre of octane for 1 Kelvin. (b) At 20 degree Celsius, the solubility of liquid octane in water is 0.007 mg / L as stated in a handbook. For a mixture of 1 L of liquid octane and 1 L of water, prove by calculations that liquid octane is almost insoluble in water.

Question 80 - Liquid octane has a density of 703 kilograms per cubic metre and molar mass of 114.23 ..

Answer 80 - (a) 1 cubic metre of liquid octane has 703 kilograms or 703 kilograms x mole / (0.11423 kilograms) = 6154.25 mole. Energy needed = [ 255.68 J / (mol K) ] x (6154.25 mol) K = 1573518.64 J where K is the unit symbol for Kelvin and mol is the unit symbol for mole. (b) Density of liquid octane = 703 kilograms per cubic metre = 0.703 grams per cubic centimetre = 703 g / L. There is 0.007 mg = 0.000007 g or 0.000007 g x (1 L / 703 g) = 0.0000000099573257 L of liquid octane in 1 L of water. With negligible amount of liquid octane in 1 L of water, octane is considered insoluble in water.

QUANTUM CHEMISTRY AND CHEMICAL ENGINEERING - EXAMPLE 31.6 : In N + 1 Rule in Quantum Chemistry, whenever a spin 1 / 2 nucleus is adjacent to N other nuclei, it is split into N + 1 distinct peaks. In 1 peak or singlet, there is only 1 magnitude. In 2 peaks or doublet, the ratio of magnitude of each peak is 1 : 1. In 3 peaks or triplet, the ratio of magnitude of each peak is 1 : 2 : 1. In 4 peaks or quartet, the ratio of magnitude of each peak is 1 : 3 : 3 : 1. In 5 peaks or quintet, the ratio of magnitude of each peak is 1 : 4 : 6 : 4 : 1. (a) By using binomial coefficients or Triangle of Pascal find the ratio of magnitude of each peak if 6 peaks exists.

CHEMICAL ENERGY BALANCE - EXAMPLE 11.5 : According to Margules Equation, P = x(1) p(1) g(1) + x(2) p(2) g(2) for a two-component mixture where P is bubble pressure, x is mole fraction, p is saturation pressure, g is constant given by ln g(1) = x(2) A x(2). Find the value of A as a constant when P = 1.08 bar, p(1) = 0.82 bar, p(2) = 1.93 bar in a 50 : 50 mole fraction mixture. Estimate the pressure required to completely liquefy the 30 : 70 mixture using the same equation, by proving P = 1.39 bar. Take note that ln g(2) = x(1) A x(1), ln g(1) = x(2) A x(2).

Let I = inflation rate, R = nominal interest rate, r = real interest rate. According to Fisher Effect, (1 + R) = (1 + r) (1 + I). According to General Inflation Effect, r = R - I. (a) If I = 0.1 for all effects, both the values of R and r in the Fisher Effect are the same as R and r in the General Inflation Effect, find the values of R and r. (b) If R has the same value caused by both General Inflation Effect and Fisher Effect, find the possible values of R, r and I in term of R etc.
