Problem:

A mixture of perfect gases consist of 3kg of carbon monoxide and 1.5kg of nitrogen at a pressure of 0.1 MPa and a temperature of 298.15 K. Using table 5-1, find

a) the effective molecular mass of the mixture

b) its gas constant

c) specific heat ratio

d) partial pressures

e) density

Solution:

a) The formula for the molar mass of a mixture of gases is

(please see the attached file)

( 1)

where M = molar mass [kg/kmol], Xk = molar fraction of species "k" in the mixture, which is given by the ratio
