1.5b. Material balances around an ammonia gas absorber.
A gas stream flows at the rate of 10.0 m3/s at 300 K and 102 kPa. It consists of an equimolar mixture of ammonia and air. The gas enters through the bottom of a packed bed gas absorber where it flows countercourrent to a stream of pure liquid water that absorbs 90% of allof the ammonia, and virtually no air. The absorber vessel is cylindrical with an internal diameter of 2.5 m.
a) Neglecting the evaporation of water, calculate the ammonia mol fraction in the gas leaving the absorber.
