Question:

A gas, composed of a non-reactive mixture of perfect gases, enters a heating chamber at 50 o F, 8 ft/sec and 5.2 lbm/sec. The gas exits the chamber at 180 o F and 15 ft/sec. The gas mixture has the following composition based on mass analysis: 65% Nitrogen, 21% Carbon dioxide, 5% Oxygen and the rest made up of Argon. Calculate the rate at which heat is added to the gas as it moves through the heating chamber.

Mole Fraction:

The mechanical quantity that represents the fraction of a number of moles of molecules to the total number of mole of the mixture is known as a mole fraction. It is a dimensionless quantity.

Given Data:

  • The mass flow rate of the gas is: {eq}{m_o} = 5.2\;{\rm{lbm/s}} {/eq}
  • The velocity of the gas at inlet is: {eq}{v_m} =...
