15.3. 500 kg of air is supplied per minute to an auditorium maintained a: 21°C and 23 per cent RH. The outside air at 5°C DBT and 60 per cent RH is first passed ova heating coils and is heated until its WBT is equal to the room WBT. It is the passed through an adiabatic saturator and is finally heated to 45°C before being supplied to the room. Determine: -(i) The heat added in both the heating coils. (ii) The mass of water evaporated in the air washer. 13

The current commercial Amplitude Modulation (AM) broadcast based radio stations operate in the 540 to 1700 KHz band with a transmission bandwidth of 10 KHz. What are the maximum number of stations that can be licensed to operate as an AM radio station? If we would like to completely minimize the interference produced by adjacent station (due to poor IF characteristics) in the above allocation and we don’t allow stations to be assigned in adjacent channels, then how many stations can be accommodated in the AM range? What are the possible image stations in the AM radio?

EXPERT ANSWER Question #1:Take 1700 kHz – 540 kHz to get the total bandwidth to be dividedup.1700kHz – 540kHz = 1160kHz Then divide by the bandwidth1160kHz / 10(kHz/station) = 116 stations Question #2:To avoid interference, we skip station spaces every otherspace.[station][–space–][station][–space–] etcTo do this, divide the number of stations by two since it there isan …

Question 3. (a) A two-dimensional flow velocity field in the domain with non-dimensional coordinates x > 0 and y > 0 is defined as: v = 3Uoxyi – Uoyj where i and j are the unit vectors in the x- and y-directions respectively and U, is a constant with units m/s. (i) Determine the magnitude and direction of the velocity at the point (1,1). (3 marks) (ii) Find the equation of the streamlines for this flow and sketch the streamline pattern in the x-y plane. With justification, also indicate the direction of the flow along the streamlines. (7 marks)

In the lab, we performed nucleation experiments to predict the nucleation rate of an active pharmaceutical ingredient at two different initial supersaturations. Assume that we started the experiments with 17 vials. Table below shows the time versus the number of vials nucleated at the studied initial supersaturations.

The dimensionless Henry’s law constant for hexane is 0.14. A sealed glass vial is prepared that has an air volume of 5 ml overlying aqueous volume of 55 ml. Hexane is added to the aqueous phase so that initially it has an aqueous phase concentration of 0.2ppm. After the system equilibrates, what will be the concentration of hexane in the aqueous phase?
