A heat exchanger is used to transfer heat from a steam stream to a chlorine gas stream. 100 kg of steam at 1 bar and 300°C enters the heat exchanger and leaves the exchanger as saturated steam at 1 bar. Chlorine gas enters the exchanger at 1 bar and 30.0°C and leaves the exchanger at 145.0°C. Assume the heat exchanger is adiabatic.
What is the specific enthalpy of the inlet steam stream? (Use liquid water at 0.01°C as a reference state.)
What is the specific enthalpy of the outlet steam stream? (Use the same reference state.)
What is the specific enthalpy of the inlet chlorine gas stream? (Use chlorine gas at 1 bar and 30.0°C as a reference state.)
How many moles of chlorine gas enter the heat exchanger?
What is the ratio of the volume of inlet steam to the volume of inlet chlorine gas? Use the ideal gas law to calculate the volume of chlorine entering the process.
How much heat is transferred from the steam stream per cubic meter of chlorine gas?
The question belongs to Chemical Engineering and it discusses about calculation of specific enthalpy of chlorine gas and steam streams.
